Finding the Perfect Fit: Factors in Journal Selection and Redirection

Authors often face challenges when it comes to finding the appropriate journal to submit their manuscripts. In this webinar, we will explore the factors authors consider when selecting a journal, such as metrics, reach, and readership. We will also discuss the support provided by libraries and gain insights from the publisher's viewpoint. It's important to note that finding the right journal may not always mean choosing the best journal, and publishers can assist authors in redirecting their manuscripts. 

Following brief introductions from each speaker, we will engage in a discussion covering the complexities of journal selection in the context of open access, the potential role of AI in offering recommendations, and the significance of journal lists in the selection process.
