    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is the impact factor the main standard to be considered while choosing a target journal?+

    Impact factor is only one of the measures you should take into consideration while selecting a suitable journal. Other factors like journal’s aim and scope match with your research topic, novelty of the study, frequency of publication, journal coverage (indexed in well-known databases like Scopus, SCI, SCIE, SSCI etc.) are also prominent factors while choosing a target journal.

    Is the first journal recommended by the Journal Selection Service the best journal for my thesis?+

    The 3-5 journals we recommend are suitable for submitting your manuscript. However, we suggest you choose the first two journals under the "Most Promising" category selected by experts for a higher publication chance. You can choose the journals under the "Normal" category as per the degree of relevance to your manuscript by reading the expert's opinions below. Accordingly, you can select one of the five recommended journals for the submission of your manuscript.
