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.
Consider Acceptance Rates when choosing where to submit your manuscript.
Also consider how many issues a journal publishes annually. Journals publishing monthly accept fewer submissions than journals publishing bi-monthly.
