This Researcher Friday, we target KTH doctoral students and researchers who want to discuss their publication. One theme may be to give you hard facts about a journal and that you can thus make a well-founded choice. We can e.g. go through relevant resources and tools where you can evaluate a journal with regard to:

  • Subject, document type, study design
  • Coverage in the larger bibliographic databases
  • Impact factor and other indicators at journal level
  • Open Access alternatives and possible KTH financing of the publication fee
  • The journal's and research funders' requirements regarding Open Access and research data
  • Peer-review, Turn-around-time, Acceptance Rate for the journal
  • Other requirements or recommendations from e.g. your supervisor or KTH
