Need help in determining where to publish your research? A new campaign, !Think. ✓Check. >Submit. can help you determine the best place to publish the results of your research.
You can benefit from more information on what to consider when choosing where to publish, but the campaign is, in particular, directed towards early-career academics, and is aimed to be accessible to those whose first language is not English, or who may not be aware of, or have access to, the full breadth of scholarly literature.
Think. Check. Submit. is a new campaign coordinated by representatives of organisations from across the industry: ALPSP, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), INASP, the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM), ISSN, LIBER, OASPA, SPARC, UKSG and others.
