Why Think. Check. Submit.?
Not all researchers receive the same level of training and support in how to choose a trustworthy journal to submit their work to. Think. Check. Submit. provides a easy-to-use checklist that researchers can refer to when they are investigating whether a journal can be trusted.
How can I confirm a publisher’s address?
Most journal and publisher’s websites should include a contact address. By using a mapping service such as Google Maps’ Street View, you can confirm whether this is a legitimate business address such as an office complex, rather than a personal address or PO Box service.
Which journals should I submit to? Which should I avoid?
There is no definitive answer to this question – almost 1,000 new journals were launched in 2014, and with new titles launching almost daily it is almost impossible to stay on top of the latest journals in each field.
