Search tips: Finding a journal for your manuscript

By Cindy Schmidt

Need help finding a home for your manuscript?

Give Jane (Journal/Author Name Estimator) a try.  You can simply paste your article’s title or abstract into the search box and then click the “Find journal” button.   A list of journals publishing similar work will appear along with an “Article Influence” metric.   Open access journals and journals with automatic-PubMed-Central-submission policies are tagged.  A “Show articles” button appears next to each journal entry that allows you to review the similar work published in that journal.

If you’d prefer a more personal touch, you’re always welcome to ask the AskUs librarians for help (402-550-6221 or askus@unmc.edu). We’re happy to search for similar publications and provide a list of journals with impact factors.
