Search Tips

If you are looking for a journal in which to publish a paper or if you are looking for journals that publish articles relating to your topic, use NewJour's search feature to help identify relevant journals.

NewJour will search for the singular and plural forms of your word as well as different verb tenses and other suffixed variants. You may need to refine your search by adding more search terms if you are using a word with multiple meanings.

Here are some search strategies to help refine your searches:
