Publishing Life Cycle
At Portland Press we work hard to support our authors through all aspects of the publishing process.
Selecting the right journal for your work means that your paper will be reviewed by individuals with the appropriate expertise and, if published, will be read by the most-relevant audience.
Before submitting to a journal, consider the following factors:
- Review the journal scope and the types of papers considered by the journal. Do these speak to the audience that you hope to reach with your work?
- Review and familiarise yourself with any journal-specific requirements or policies.
- Do you want to publish your article open access? If so, is the journal fully open access or does it have an open access option?
- What does the peer review process for the journal look like?
