Introduction: Why is journal selection so important?

Welcome! In this course, we will look at the important step of journal selection. Selecting the most appropriate journal to publish your research in is crucial to maximizing your chances of acceptance.

By following some simple steps, you can choose the journal that is the best match for your research. This can increase your chances of publication success.

Choosing the right journal ensures that your work is published quickly and is read by an appropriate audience. These factors can enhance your career progression and funding opportunities. Simply put, you should choose the right journal to avoid immediate rejection, save yourself time, and sometimes money, and speed up your career advancement.
