Helping Authors find the perfect journal for their paper

Elsevier  have launched a new tool to help authors find the right journal for their paper. The new Journal Finder tool is accessible from www.elsevier.com/authors and has just gone live in BETA version. The tool is designed to:
  • Help less experienced authors to select suitable journals for their papers
  • Enable authors working across multidisciplinary fields to identify possible journals
  • Highlight journals that offer open access options, and provide information on publication speeds and impact factors
The Journal Finder tool is aligned with Elsevier's goal to help authors get published in the best possible journal as fast as possible. Sandra Yee, Dean, University Library System, Wayne State University, U.S., said: "The Journal Finder tool as envisioned by Elsevier will provide substantive data and more specific information... thereby aiding both the faculty members and the librarians."
