Faculty Fridays: How can I find quality journals to publish in?

Use the library to find non-predatory scholarly journals. Browse our journals by title or subject or use OneSearch to find journals (see screenshot above). The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) maintains 'best practices' standards for the journals it hosts. If you need to check on a journal, The Serials Directory database (login required for off-campus users) provides information such as publisher, frequency, and indexing on nearly 250,000 journals and other serials.

Faculty Fridays: Should I avoid journals that charge a fee to publish?

Author processing charges (or APCs) are one way open access journals can fund the editorial work and peer review that goes into their production since they don't charge readers subscription fees. On the other hand, predatory publishers charge APCs to make money without providing these services. If you're asked to pay an APC to publish in a journal you're not familiar with, check out some tips on identifying predatory journals.
