Academic Publishing Resources

Additional Online Tools for Journal Selection

Ulrichsweb

Ulrichsweb database helps locate publication information about specific journals. Search by title or subject to find information on more than 300,000 periodicals including academic journals, popular magazines, newspapers, e-journals, newsletters, proceedings, and more.  

Results provide:
  • Peer-review information. Look for the referee shirt icon: peer reviewed icon  
  • A list of databases that index/ abstract that journal or provide its full text, essential for verifying that your article will be readily "found" by other researchers
  • A brief description of its contents and content type (academic or popular, etc.)
  • Journal's URL and subscription information

However, note that Ulrich's (unlike Cabell's) does NOT quality-check the journals it lists! It only publishes whatever it receives from a journal publisher. You must evaluate the journal yourself. See our Evaluate Journals suggestions.

Search Tips:

Begin by entering the topic area of your research. Narrow your results using the facets on the left side of the results list:

  1. Click the Key Features facet to select the "Abstracted or Indexed" option.
  2. Use Publication Status to limit to Active journals, as Ulrichsweb includes historical informtion about ceased publications.
  3. The Subject Areas facet allows you to narrow results to broad disciplines such as Business & Technology or Education.
  4. In the search results: Click the journal title to view detailed information.
