Use your abstract or top keywords to receive journal recommendations, or search our comprehensive database of journal information to make data-driven decisions about which journal to choose. JournalGuide allows you to effectively search, sort, filter, and compare journals. We also offer a robust Journal Recommendation service for more personal evaluation by experts.
JournalGuide is a free tool that helps researchers to evaluate scholarly journals. In addition to searching by journal name, category, or publisher, authors can use the title and abstract of a paper to discover journals that have already published articles on similar topics. By matching journals to a paper’s content, researchers can see which journals would be most likely to have interest in their story.
For personalized guidance on selecting a journal, try our Journal Recommendation service.
The Journal Recommendation service provides a detailed report on three journals that is compiled by experts in your field and then reviewed by our in-house team. We will ensure that all journals selected are well matched to your article’s findings and your publication goals. Each report is customized to the needs of the author; therefore, we encourage you to tell us about your specific publishing goals when you submit your order.
