Gutenberg Bible - Lenox copy - NYPL

When investigating where to publish a new article, try these ideas:

1. Perform a general database search on your topic to see which journals have accepted articles in your topic area.

2. Think cross-disciplinary. Consider journals from disciplines closely related to your topic.

3. Try Ulrich's Periodicals Directory. TWU Login required. Search for journals using SUBJECT search.

  Acceptance Rates

Consider Acceptance Rates when choosing where to submit your manuscript.

  • Journals with lower acceptance rates are frequently considered to be more prestigious / meritorious.

  • Acceptance rates can be found in the "Information for Authors" area of the print journal and online journal webpages.

  • Some professional societies publish acceptance rates for journals they publish or journals within a particular field

Also consider how many issues a journal publishes annually. Journals publishing monthly accept fewer submissions than journals publishing bi-monthly.
