For journal impact, JCR gives information year-by-year on the impact factors of journals as well as the half-life (for how many years an article is cited after publication) of journals. Uses the data from Web of Science.
Predatory Publishers: Aggressive marketing to unsuspecting authors, fictional editorial boards, little or no peer review, unqualified reviewers, and generally poor editorial quality are issues that plague the journal publishing landscape.
Author Rights and Publication Models
Be sure to consider options for retaining your author rights. Librarians can help you navigate this.
There are two different publishing options, which you will want to consider among other factors when selecting a journal.
Traditional publishing requires readers to pay for access, often through a subscription paid for by your school or library. UNLV Libraries pays over $7 million per year on our collections, for example. As an author, only people with subscription access will be able to read your work.
Open Access refers to publications which are free to anyone with an internet connection.
