Selecting a Journal

Your colleagues, instructors and advisors are excellent resources to help you identify journals that are appropriate for your article. You may also want to consider submitting to one or more of the journals that you read in the course of your research.

You may also read of a "Call for Papers", a method used by publishers to collect articles, conference presentations, and book chapters for potential publication. (More information on the Building Your Academic Profile guide.) While many calls for papers, conference presentations, etc. are from legitimate publishers, an increasing number are from predatory publishers. Scroll down for more information about predatory publishers.

In some disciplines, peer-reviewed conference proceedings are as important as journal articles. For information about finding and publishing in conferences, go to Building Your Academic Profile or contact your Subject Librarian.
