Identifying Publishing Opportunities


This session is designed to introduce clinical researchers to tools and strategies for identifying new publishing opportunities. The session will explore a variety of tools, such as journal indexes, directories, and suggesters which can be used for locating new journal titles within their desired field. Additionally, the session will review the journal qualities a researcher should examine to assure the identified journal meets their publishing needs, as well as ways to avoid predation from “predatory titles”.

Learning Objectives

  • Recall tools that can be used to identify journal titles in their field
  • Recognize varying characteristics of journals titles to include publication medium or platform, publication frequency, journal impact metrics, indexing, peer-review process, and author’s rights
  • Identify journal titles that meet specific research needs
  • Acknowledge library services that support clinical researchers throughout the journal identification process
