Do you often wonder how to select a journal in which to publish or wonder about the quality of a journal? This online workshop session will demonstrate tools to identify potential journals in your field, how to determine impact factors for journals (Journal Citation Reports, Scimago), how to find where a journal is indexed for dissemination, and tools to evaluate the quality of journals. Reputable, peer-reviewed Open Access journals are on the rise, but so are “predatory publisher” that charge publication fees but do little in terms of peer review. Tips and tools to identify legitimate open access journals and avoid predatory publishers will also be covered, to help you determine if publishing in a specific open access journal will be worth the author fee.
