Which Journal is Right For Your Research?

An important step in the publishing cycle is choosing the best journal for your research. There are so many journals out there, but which ones are the best? Which ones are real or predatory? Which ones have a high impact factor?

These questions can be easily answered using the Health Sciences Library’s journal evaluation tool.

This tool will save you time by pulling impact factors, CiteScore, and other quality indicators for the journals you need, all in one place. A new addition to the tool is whether a journal has been hijacked or if any publishing fees are reduced or waived for MU affiliates.

All you need to search is the journal title or the ISSN.

Email us at at asklibrary@health.missouri.edu if you need assistance.

Twice As Hard : The Stories of Black Women Who Fought to Become Physicians, from the Civil War to the 21st Century

Black women physicians’ stories have gone untold for far too long, leaving gaping holes in American medical history, in women’s history, and in black history. It’s time to set the record straight No real account of black women physicians in the US exists, and what little mention is made of these women in existing histories is often insubstantial or altogether incorrect. In this work of extensive research, Jasmine Brown offers a rich new perspective, penning the long-erased stories of nine pioneering black women physicians beginning in 1860, when a black woman first entered medical school.
