It's hard to keep up with all the new journals and the changing publishing scene.

Miner Library has created this guide to make your writing and publishing life easier. It covers:

  • deciding where to publish
  • choosing journals with the highest impact in your field
  • evaluating open access journals
  • avoiding predatory publishing practices
  • establishing author identifiers

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your department liaison librarian. We're here to help! We can get you started with EndNote or RefWorks, help you select appropriate databases and devise effective literature search strategies, advise you on using Journal Citation Reports to find influential journals, and helping you identify predatory publishing practices.
