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.
