I have made quite a few bad decisions over the years in selecting journals to publish papers that I have written. Often, I've been able to publish papers on the 2nd or 3rd try, and I've always wished in hindsight that I'd been more astute in choosing the journal. One time, I actually published in a journal better that the one I had initially chosen.

Can I ask, if you have published, how you go about choosing a journal in your field to submit a paper you have written? What are the criteria that you consider? Does it make a difference if you submit to a journal that is published more frequently?

Hi

Don't think you are alone in publishing articles on the 2nd or 3rd attempt. We have all been there at one time or the other. However, it is possible to make better-informed decisions about your paper's destination if you spend some time thinking about it.

The first thing I always do is have a close colleague read the paper and give me an honest opinion of where he or she thinks the paper fits - not only the journals, but whether it is an A or B or B+ - type paper. Once you know the general quality of the paper, you can narrow down your choices. If you know an editor or associate editor, that's a better place to go than if you don't. Actually, if one of these is a personal friend, have them read the paper first and give you an idea of whether it is worth it to send the paper there in the first place.

The unsavoury aspect of publishing is that a large number of papers are published through personal contacts - directly or indirectly. Editors will never admit to this openly Shhh, but we are a subtle and sophisticated society after all. If lobbyists can make or modify laws in Congress, what makes you think the world of academic publishing is all that different? anyhow, that's a little dose of reality for you.

I know MyNetResearch has a journal advising tool that helps you identify a journal to send a paper to, but I have not really taken a good look at it.

Journal selection may also depend on the requirements at your university. Talk with a senior faculty member. Research institutions may only "count" certain journals. Sometimes Universities have journal rankings - so aim for those journals. Other places want journals with certain acceptance rates. Check to see if your library has a subscription to Cabell's

Finally, consider partnering with someone with a successful track record of publishing. Follow their lead.

I would also add the possibility of calling or emailing the journal's Editor or an Associate Editor to see the extent of fit between your article and the journal's scope. Of course, this is after reading the Journal's Instructions to Authors and Description and validating this for yourself.

Sometimes, this will help you avoid submitting an article to a journal that has no chance from the outset because their focus is currently on other topics.

Since we are on a social networking site, might I suggest crowdsourcing? Put a brief synopsis of your work on MyNetResearch, while being careful to guard the most vital and specific elements; and receive advice from the MyNetResearch community as to the best journal(s) to submit your article.

Also, you can use the MyNetResearch Journal Selection Guide. This will help you narrow down your choices.

I suggest you talk to the Editor or the Associate Editor of the journal. Many times, they are happy to talk to you about your paper and suitability for their journal.

There are different journal lists for each subject area usually, but one quick way is to use MyNetResearch's (free) Journal Selection Guide. You can find it at:

I have checked this out in Chrome and Firefox and it is working fine. Here are more detailed steps:

1. Login to MNR at: https://www.mynetresearch.com/Signup/Login.aspx

2. Click on the Tab: <My ToolBox>. Make sure you don't have a popup blocker as a new Window/Tab is opened.
You are a Premium Member (I checked) so you should see all the tools.

3. Click on <Journal Selection Guide> and select your criteria.

4. Click on <Submit>

Let me know if you still have problems.

Best
