Think. Check. Submit.

Share this on social media:

Think. Check. Submit. has released a video that highlights key questions researchers should ask when assessing a journal they are considering submitting their work to. The video can be viewed on campaign’s online hub at and can be embedded by anyone onto their own web page.

The video provides eight tips on how to check a journal or publisher’s credentials and it can be shared in workshops or embedded on other websites as it is made available under a CC BY license. This new resource accompanies downloadable posters and a check list, which are also available at the campaign’s URL.

'Researchers, especially those in the early stages of their career, are often unsure of the indicators of quality when selecting a journal to submit their work to,' said Helen Dobson, on behalf of UKSG.

'Since the campaign’s launch in October 2015, more than 15,000 individuals worldwide have visited the Think. Check. Submit. website; the new video illustrates many of the key points of the check list in a format that can be shared between colleagues, and displayed in libraries and other research hubs.'
