Poll: reasons when selecting a journal to submit a paper
April 29, 2013 4 Comments
Choosing the journal where to send our paper is critical for two main reasons:
- Objective factors. The main thing is that it fits in our publication strategy: indexed, with impact factor, peer reviewed, open access, among other criteria.
- Subjective factors. Then, and not the least, we have to find the journal that is looking for the kind of research and manuscript that we have written. This way we could avoid sending our paper to multiple journals, wasting our time and morale.
