Cabells International is a longtime aggregator of journal publishing information for authors in search of a journal outlet.
• Journalytics provides metrics (including acceptance rates) and editor contacts for 13,000+ journals in 15 subject areas. HINT! Use the Journalytics search filter to find your discipline and subdiscipline, or search for a journal title to discover its assigned disciplines and subdisciplines.
• Predatory Reports identifies ~16,000 journals that meet Cabells' behavioral indicators for exploitative operations. The database provides a summary of Cabells' violations reports for listed titles.
• Cabells also provides author services - English language editing, manuscript formatting, and journal selection - for a fee. The Penn Libraries do not subscribe to these author services.
JCR has been the longtime go-to database for journal impact ranking. Impact indicators include Journal Impact Factor (an index of citations received by a journal's articles published within the preceding two years or five years), Immediacy Index (an index of citations received by a journal's articles published during their publication year), Eigenfactor (5-year JIF weighted by JIF score of citing journals), and Cited/Citing Half-Life (the longevity of citations to a journal's articles). JCR is published alongside Web of Science. FUN TO TRY! JCR has released Manuscript Matcher. Submit your article title and an abstract, and JCR will return journal titles that might be good fits for your manuscript.
