Publication Guidelines

Selecting an Appropriate Journal 

What is a "high-quality" journal? 

Indexed journals, especially those with good/high impact factors, are rightly presumed to be of certain high “quality.” Such journals ensure a consistent and good quality peer-review process and it is prestigious to publish in them. However, these high impact factor journals also have a very high rejection rate. For more information on selecting an appropriate journal, please read the full article cited below.

Indexed Journals

PubMed/Medline, EMBASE, Web of Science, and Scopus are considered to be some of the best indexing agencies for scientific journals.
