Identifying journal options is a good idea prior to writing an article to save time and effort. Journals are so numerous, it can be hard to know what all the options are. Thankfully, there are tools that can assist you.
Consider publishing in a journal that does not charge readers or their institutions for access. Although some researchers feel open access means poorer quality, that is not always the case. There is a significant movement in scholarly publishing to make more scholarly work publicly available.
Databases maintain specific criteria before indexing a journal. These vary slightly among the various databases. Criteria for Web of Science, Medline, and Scopus are available at the links below.
