Student peer review journal options
Who will publish your work if you are early in your career?
One of the exciting challenges for first time authors is finding a journal willing to disseminate research from a presentation after a healthcare conference. Journals have specific characteristics to achieve goals and impact.
Their characteristics include:
- acknowledgement of writing skills of early-stage scholars
- open-access peer reviewing.
