Edanz Journal Selector (Your target journal in minutes not days)


The journal selector uses cutting-edge semantic technology to help you achieve publication success. Enter in your abstract or a sample text and the Journal Selector will give you a list of journals that publish in related areas. You can then refine your results based on the factors that matter to you, like publication frequency, Impact Factor or publishing model, including open access.

  • How does the Journal Selector work?

Journal Selector uses advanced matching algorithms and natural language processing to identify the ‘fingerprint’ of a scientific text and match it to the fingerprint of a journal’s content.

  • How do I use Journal Selector?

Simply enter an abstract, description, or any scientific text. Journal Selector will match the text to journals that have published relevant papers. Results can be sorted and refined based on match-strength, Impact Factor, and publication frequency. Your text can be updated at any time to improve results.

Clicking on journal titles will take you to a page with more detailed information about that journal. The journal’s Match Analysis explains why the journal is considered to be relevant to your paper. A higher score on a matched concept means a stronger relevance for that topic. The list of Relevant Articles shows papers previously published by that journal which are related to yours.

Once you have narrowed the options to a few journals you should visit a journal’s website to aid in making a final decision. Be sure to review the journal’s Aims and Scope, search for related prior publications, and read the Instructions for Authors.

  • Why did Edanz build Journal Selector?

Edanz seeks to remove barriers to publication success. As the leading provider of scientific editing, particularly to scientists whose first language is not English, we understand the challenges these authors face when trying to have their research published. Edanz seeks to remove these barriers so that papers can be judged on the basis of their scientific merit and so that scientists can have more time to focus on their research.
