The Future of Scholarly Publishing

Finding journals to publish in

CUNY’s Office of Library Services is collaborating with CUNY’s Office of Research and the Research Foundation’s Office of Award Pre-Proposal Support to offer Faculty Funding Fridays, a new webinar series for the CUNY community. This is a recording of their first workshop:

Selecting a Venue for Journal Publication
September 25, 2020
Led by Megan Wacha (Scholarly Communications Librarian, Office of Library Services) and Tracey Revenson (Professor of Psychology at Hunter College and Editor-in-Chief of the Annals of Behavioral Medicine)

This webinar supports faculty researchers to make informed decisions when selecting a journal to publish their work, including how to find and evaluate potential journal venues (including the identification of predatory publishers), as well as understanding one’s rights as an author when negotiating contracts.



  • Don't forget to check the journals you used in your research. Maybe one of them is the perfect place for your article.

  • Find specific journals available through the LaGuardia Library, by searching our alphabetical titles list or browse our journals by subject category.

  • Another way to find journals by subject is to search the LaGuardia Library OneSearch using topic keywords along with the term "periodicals".

  • Expand your search to all CUNY catalogs by choosing "All CUNY Libraries" from a OneSearch results page or Advanced Search page. Note that you can access most CUNY libraries with your ID in order to access the electronic and print journals of those other CUNY libraries. Reference staff should be able to help you find a computer for viewing electronic journals that doesn't require a login from that campus.

  • Use LaGuardia Library databases. Many of them offer ways to search and browse for journals. Find databases by name on our alphabetical list of subscription databases.

  • Search the Serials Directory database to locate information on nearly 250,000 journal titles. This database's advanced search allows you to target journals by characteristics such as frequency of publication and publisher.
