Before formally submitting a manuscript to a SCI journal, authors need to find a suitable journal for them. Publishing a SCI paper can help authors show their research results, evaluate professional titles, etc. Only by finding a suitable SCI journal can they better complete the paper. So is there any way to help authors choose the right sci journal for them? Let's take a look at my sharing.
There are three main ways to select sci journals, the first is tool development, the second is manual method, and the third is literature method. is other. Before choosing a SCI journal, authors need to confirm what their needs are, so as to delineate the scope of their choice of SCI journals.
1. Tool method:
At present, there are two main mainstream selection tools for SCI journals. One is the large-scale database retrieval tools developed by large publishing companies, such as Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, Taylor & Francis, SAGE, etc. The large publishers have their own journal selection tools; The second is to select journals through third-party platforms.
No matter what journal screening tool it is, its logic is the same. As long as the title and abstract of the article are entered into the retrieval place, the journal screening function will recommend the author based on the keywords of the article, and then according to the matching degree of the article, All recommended journals are listed and then screened.
2. Manual method:
It takes a long time to choose a SCI journal, and there are likely to be many problems, such as the impact factor of SCI journals, or incomplete information, which will affect the choice of authors. Any journal has its specific publishing direction. If you don’t know its publishing direction, you are likely to submit manuscripts to journals that are not suitable for you, wasting a lot of time and experience.
Therefore, it is best to have professionals or scholars who have published similar papers to assist in the selection. They know more about the requirements of some professional journals in this field, and also know which grade their papers are in. Many authors will seek professional help to make recommendations, which will be more efficient and more professional.
3. Document Law:
Usually, the literature cited in the paper is related to the content and direction of the paper, so the journal in which the reference in the paper is located can also be considered as a journal candidate. In daily reading, you need to pay attention to some of the most common magazines, which are very likely to be suitable for you.
