Publishing articles in journals may help:
Journals vary widely, so think about the following factors when choosing a journal for publishing:
Impact and ranking (may refer to Bibliometrics & Research Impact databases)
Editor and Editorial Board
Predatory publishers are publishers whose primary goal is financial gain, based on unethical business practices, demonstrate unusually high acceptance rates, and oftentimes list high-profile editorial board members who have not agreed to serve as reviewers for the publication.
Some journals appear to have been hijacked, meaning that their websites or branding have been co-opted by a predatory journal or publisher.
Journal's editorial policy, instructions to authors and other pertinent information are very useful for you to prepare and submit an article to a journal. Make sure you read and understand such kinds of information clearly before preparing a final version of your article. Please refer to websites of individual publisher or journal for more details.
Compare journals and look for high-impact articles using citation bibliometrics:
