This video covers a number of important issues relating to publishing in academic journals. It is a combination of all 4 parts of a series.
You need to make sure that any articles you publish can be found and cited by other researchers.
We recommend that you publish in a journal indexed in Scopus. This is a very large database used around the world and includes publications from 5000 different sources.
Publishing in a journal included in Scopus:
How to find out if a journal is indexed in Scopus
1. Go to Scopus
2. In the top right hand corner there will be a button that says 'Sources:'
3. Click that button
4. Enter the title of the journal in the search bar at the top of the page and click Find Sources (using the Enter key will likely change the title of the journal)
5. If the journal appears in the search results, it's indexed in Scopus!
You can also search by subject area to discover the top journals in your field that are indexed by Scopus
