Self-help Guide for Navigating the Library

I need info about a specific journal.

The publisher's web site is one way to learn more about a specific journal, such as: 

  • Is it peer reviewed?
  • What is the journal's scope and focus?
  • What is their editorial policy?
  • What are their submission policies?

The publisher website for a particular journal has information about editorial and submission policies. You can search Google for the journal title. Submission information and editorial policies for a journal are usually not on the homepage. Look for About, Contact, Instructions to Authors, Author Guidelines, or Contribute links.

For more guidance see I need to know if a journal is significant in my field.
