Evaluating the Quality of Publications and Conferences

The Hunter College Libraries offer this guide to assist faculty in identifying appropriate and reputable venues in which to publish or present scholarly work.  This may be helpful to faculty who have been targeted by requests to publish or present in a venue with which they are not familiar, to newer faculty, and anyone who wants to learn more about current issues regarding publication quality. The guide discusses issues related to open access publishing; factors that make some journals or publishers less credible than others; and methods for evaluating the credentials of a journal or academic conference.  We also recommend consulting guidelines for best practices within your own disciplines and professional associations.
