Library Services can help you identify journals to consider submitting your manuscript. In my role of Scholarly Communication Librarian, I can search on your title and/or abstract using some free and library-purchased tools — such as Journal / Author Name Estimater (JANE), Web of Science, and Scopus — and provide you with information about the journals identified, like Journal Impact Factor and where the journal is indexed.
Here are some quotes from people who have used this service:
“Your service helped affirm some journals that I thought would be good homes for our work, but also brought up new journals that I had not considered before. Thanks” — Peter P. Lee, MD; Cancer Immunotherapeutics & Tumor Immunology
“We got our paper accepted in DCI [Developmental and Comparative Immunology]. It is 51 pages (51 pages are as submitted [double spaced] prior to “type-setting” for the journal printed pages) plus a huge set of files in the appendix. Thank you very much.” — Marcia M. Miller, PhD; Molecular & Cellular Biology
