What types of peer-reviewed journals exist?


All scientific journals can be divided into several categories:

1. By geographical location:

  • Published in the country in which the scientist works.
  • Foreign.

More attractive are those that are foreign, since the published article will be able to read and use more scientists from other countries.

Figures are an important component of the article, illustrate the study and make the material more visual and understandable. No wonder they say "it is better to see once than hear a hundred times". Many publishers publish figures on the article page as separate files. Therefore, the quality of the figures should be very high.

Open Access publications: pros and cons

Citations, from which various ratings and scientific indicators are composed, are a valuable currency of the modern scientist. With even excellent publications, but not cited, a scientist is doomed to be at the tail end of any ranking. That in turn entails missing an opportunity to earn a high salary, academic position, to participate in competitions and grants.

Why do you need to edit an author's profile in the Scopus database and how can one do it?

An author's profile in the Scopus database should be as correct and complete as possible due to the following:

  • it is a source of information about a scientist and his/her research for other scientists, academic journals, foundations, and other funding resources;
  • it is used to compile different rankings of scientists;
  • it is the basis for ranking the institution where a scientist works; the overall rating of the institution is composed of the employees' scores.

Series of teaching videos “Promote your paper”. How to register at Zenodo and to add your study

The specificity of modern science doesn’t allow a scientist only to cope with studies and to publish papers in scientific journals. A scientist must constantly work for branding his/her papers, to demonstrate them to the world, to gain own audience of readers and like-minded persons, to get views and citations. Obviously, a publishing house helps its authors in this problem, but nobody can promote a study better than its author.

  • review terms
  • publication terms;
  • indexing of the journal
  • the journal's scientific indicators;
  • the journal's open access policy;
  • price of publication;
