A new cross-industry campaign has been launched – Think. Check. Submit. The campaign aims to provide information for researchers, through an online hub, about the criteria they should look for when selecting where to publish their research.
The volume of research output continues to grow, and recent years have seen an increase in new publishing services and outlets. In March of this year, the CrossRef database alone included over 71 million digital object identifiers (DOIs), of which 55 million refer to journal articles from a total of over 36,000 journals. Those behind the campaign say there is little in the way of guidance exists when it comes to choosing a journal to publish in. 
The campaign is led by representatives from organisations across the industry: ALPSP, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), INASP, the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers (STM), ISSN, LIBER, OASPA, UKSG and individual publishers. The campaign will help researchers understand their options, and key criteria they can check before making an informed decision about where to submit.
