Journal Evaluation Tools

This guide is intended to be helpful to someone trying to identify quality journals in their discipline. It covers journal rankings, acceptance and rejection rates, and links out to information on predatory journals and open access.

Journal Ranking Tools

Journal rankings can be very controversial and each resource has pros and cons to their use. Journal Citation Reports and SCImago are the two largest and most heavily used tools. For publications not covered by these tools, you might want to check out CiteScore or Google Scholar Metrics.
