Journal Selection Service for Publication

Selecting the right journal is important to ensure that your paper gets published. Often, papers are rejected because the research topic is outside the scope of the journal, or is aimed at a different target audience. With our specialised Journal Selection service, our experts individually go through your manuscript and recommend the top most suitable journals for you.

  • Our expert’s recommendation of 3-5 best suited journals
  • A detailed Journal Selection report to explain the selection
  • Easier decision-making with additional information about the shortlisted journals
