Where should I publish?
1) Impact Factor is one way to decide and you can look up specific journals or review a category of journals using the Journal Citation Report. It is available online.
2) Another option is to find journals that have published articles similar to the one you have written. There are two options for this:
JANE - Journal and Author Name Estimator
Identify possible journals that have published on your specific topic by searching with your manuscript title and/or a portion of your text. They use the Medline database for identifying similar articles.
Results will include a list of journals publishing on your topic, and the Article’s Influence (based on Eigen Factor analysis). Eigen's Article Influence score is similar to the Impact Factor. For more details, see their FAQ:
EndNote Online - Match Tool (beta)
If you have an EndNote Online account (free) then you can use their new "Match" feature that will try to match your title & abstract and references, if you have them in EndNote Online, with similar articles found in the Web of Science database.
