Publish and prosper

A guide to finding the best publisher, avoiding predatory publishers, and making your mark in publishing.

Think. Check. Submit.

This short video provides a step-by-step approach to choosing a credible and appropriate publisher before you submit your work.

Your new mantra is Think. Check. Submit.

If you have identified a journal that appears to be a good fit for your work, you need to determine if the journal/publisher is reputable. You can do so by:

  • checking library information on predatory publishers
  • speaking with your colleagues
  • checking the name of the organisation that publishes the journal
  • reviewing the Think.Check.Submit website
  • using online tools, such as journal metrics through InCites.
