Library:PublishingArticles/journal in mind
If you have a journal in mind
Before you submit, visit a journal's website to read "Aims and Scope" sections as well as "Instructions to authors" or "Manuscript submissions" (terms may vary). In addition, read a few articles to ensure that your article
- is in the same subject area as the journal. Note that "subject areas" can be wide or very narrow.
- follows a particular approach, theory or methodology as required by the journal.
- is aimed at the same audience as articles in the journal. For for example, academic researchers in psychology, not practicing psychologists.
