Find journals in a specific subject area in Web of Science
There are several different ways to find journals to publish in. Here you are introduced to different ways to identify suitable journals within your subject area.
Identify journals with impact factor within your subject area
On the first page, select “browse by journal” and then “select categories”. Select a category, scroll down and click “submit”.
This returns a list of journals sorted by impact factor. To find out which are Open Access, check “Open Access” in the left column and click “submit”.
Find a suitable journal using subject search
If you want to identify suitable journals indexed on Web of Science but not necessarily with impact factor, you can search your subject and view the journal search results.
In the search results, scroll down and click on “Source titles” to the left. To view more source titles, click on “more options/values”.
Find the right journal based on your manuscript
Next, click on Match and enter the title and abstract to generate a list of suitable journals. Even though the match is based on the manuscript title, abstract and keywords, it is still useful to read the aim and scope of the journal too see how well the manuscript fits.
