Evaluating Journals

Often the best way to identify an outlet for publication is to think about what journals you and your colleagues regularly read and cite. You may also need to consider a journal's Impact Factor, and average time to publication. 

Try entering your topic or keywords in a relevant library database, then filter by "peer reviewed" to find reputable journals the publish articles on your topic. 

Or, ask a librarian for help!
