Top 7 online tools that provide journal recommendation to researchers

Here are useful online resources that provide journal suggestions or recommendation to researchers.

1. Elsevier Journal Finder
Elsevier® Journal Finder helps you find journals that could be best suited for publishing your scientific article. Powered by the Elsevier Fingerprint Engine™, Elsevier Journal Finder uses smart search technology and field-of-research specific vocabularies to match your article to Elsevier journals.

2. IEEE Publication Recommender
Search 170+ periodicals and 1500+ conferences. Compare critical points such as Impact Factor and Submission-To-Publication Time. Get all the key data about IEEE publications at a glance.

3. Springer Journal Suggester
Search over 2,500 journals (Springer and BioMed Central) to find the most suitable journal for your manuscript. Easily compare relevant journals to find the best place for publication.

4. Edanz Journal Selector
Edanz is a Hong Kong-based company that provides fee-based services to authors such as copyediting and letter writing. One of its services is a journal finder, at the moment this service is currently free on their website. Among other services described here, this one appears to have the broadest coverage.

5. Journal Article Name Estimator (JANE)
This service originates in the Netherlands. It is limited to journals included in Medline, a database published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Thus, it’s limited to biomedical sciences journals. This one offers an alternative search method to entering your article’s title and abstract — you can enter keywords in a simple search box.

6. Cofactor Journal Selector
This service originates in the UK. Established for two years and has over 50 freelance editors. This one offers an options menu to find journals that match your requirements.

7. Journal Guide
JournalGuide is a free tool created by a group of software developers, former researchers, and scholarly publishing veterans at Research Square. A growing journal database across all academic fields that search, filter, sort and compare journals from more than 46,000 titles.

After all, the best way to become familiar with the top journals in your field is to:

  1. Read may articles in your area of study and take note of where the best ones are published.
  2. Consult with senior colleagues in your department.
  3. Consult with an academic librarian.
