Title: Digital strategies to find the right journal for publishing your research
Speaker: Duncan Nicholas, former Managing Editor at the international academic publisher Taylor and Francis Group and now Senior Consultant at Enago Academy
Overview: There are tens of thousands of academic journals to choose from. Submitting a paper to an unsuitable journal is a key cause of article rejection, but it can be difficult to narrow down which journal is best suited. This webinar will outline how digital tools can support the decision process. After the webinar, attendees will:
- Understand journal selection mechanisms in the digital age including finding journal rankings online and identifying predatory journals,
- Describe novel digital tools that assist with identifying the right journal for a research project (e.g., https://findmyjournal.com, https://journalfinder.elsevier.com, https://journalsuggester.springer.com, https://www.enago.com/academy/journal-finder/).
- Understand the role of associations such as Think.Check.Submit, DOAJ, and OASPA in facilitating effective journal selection.
