Ready to submit your research for publication? Pick the right journal!
Before submitting your work for publication through a website, make sure that you're considering the right journal to do so:

1) First, familiarize yourself with the "Open Accesspublishing model and learn how it differs from "Predatory publishing".

2) Next, find a journal relevant to your field of research: 
3) Avoid journals that have a questionable reputation:
  • Consult the Directory of Open Access Publications (DOAJ)
  • Consult the Beall's list of "predatory"  publishers and publications and review the Criteria used by Beall, which can be helpful as you make up your own mind about the merits of any and all journals you may be considering 
  • Check if the publisher is a member of Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM

And at any time, feel free to consult the Cave Hill librarians for further guidance!
