Choose the best journals and publishers for your research and learn how to measure its impact after publication (research metrics).

About This Guide

Research impact matters!

  • The type of research you do and where you decide to publish it has a great potential impact on your own career and on the funding your University receives.
  • It is in your own interest and crucial for the university that you maximize the impact of your research.

This guide will help you answer these questions:

  • What journal should I submit my article to? (See the the Publish tab for more)
  • What publisher should I choose for my book? (Publish tab)
  • Does it matter where I present my conference paper? (Publish tab)
  • When I am published, how can I measure the impact it's having? (See the H-Index and Other metrics tabs)
  • How can I see how I am impacting my research field compared to other researchers? (See the Impact Factors tab)
  • How can I maximize the impact and visibility of my research? (See the Get famous fast! tab)
