There are some steps one should take in determining to which journal to submit an article. Credibility of a journal is one of the most important factors. Under the Library's Writing and Publishing section, there is a whole segment on Assessing Journal Credibility. The other factor to consider is how often a topic or related topics are published in certain journals. By performing a search on a topic, both Web of Science and Scopus allow for sorting by the number of times a topic has been published in journals.
The WHSC Library also subscribes to Nature Masterclasses, which has 13 modules about how to select a journal. One of the modules explores "Criteria for selecting a journal." Available to Emory faculty, staff, and students, register with your Emory University email for access to the modules.
