The quality of a publisher is an important consideration when choosing where to publish your research. 

It is essential to be able to demonstrate that your research is published in journals that are high quality, relevant to your field of research and will have a demonstrated impact on future research and practice. 

The key factors to consider are:

  •  Relevance to your field of research (FoR) and reaching the desired target audience
  •  Journal impact, which is often measured using metrics and journal rankings
  • Journal-level metrics can be used to identify quality academic journals in your research field

To measure a journal’s impact to determine Journal quality, review the Library's  Finding Scholarly Publishing Outlets for further guidance about:

  • Considerations before you start writing your paper
  • Developing your publishing plan
  • Quality indicators for assessing your publishing sources
  • Considerations for pre-selecting your publishing sources
  • Tools to help you shortlist suitable publishing sources.
