How to choose a suitable Journal for your paper?

While choosing a journal keep the below mentioned points in mind –
1. See if there is a match between the research paper and the journal’s scope and aim?
The most common reason for journal rejection is the mismatch between the manuscript journal’s aim and scope.

2. What si the readership and target audience?
Have a look at the below example,
If, for example, your paper could have a bearing on public policy or could change the way nurses handle patient care, then choose a broad-based journal that reaches a wide and non-technical audience.

3. Is the journal highly visible?
Is the journal included in electronic databases? Is the journal indexed in ISI’s Web of Science? Is it indexed in the popular subject-specific databases in your field (like EconLit or PsychINFO)? This improves the visibility of your research in your chosen field of research and may also increase the number of times your article is cited.
