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".  Understand why there are legitimate Submission and Publication Fees that may be charged to you as an author.

2) Next, find a journal relevant to your field of research: 
  • Consult with your colleagues: what journals do they publish in, and why?
  • Use a journal recommendation service like the Edanz Journal SelectorJane, or the CoFactor Journal Selector
  • The mission of Open Access Academy (OAA) is to provide resources, support and advice for students and early career researchers in their journey from writing to publishing their scientific papers. OAA's THINK-CHECK-SUBMIT campaign seeks to "help researchers identify trusted journals for their research."
3) Avoid journals that have a questionable reputation:
  • 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 lists of vetted journals (e.g., the Directory of Open Access Publications, DOAJ) and publishers (e.g., membership list of the Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers, STM.) 

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