Publish Your Research

Many publishers now make their publications freely available to read on their websites. For journal publishers, this can be via open access journals or hybrid journals where certain articles are free to read. Commercial publishers will charge authors an article processing charge after peer-review on acceptance for publication.

Whenever you are ready to submit your article to a publisher for peer review and publication, you should evaluate the journal for the best fit for your research. This guide can be useful with making such an evaluation.
