First -- talk with the CORE Librarian, who can help you if you have any questions.
Start with JANE -- Journal/Author Name Estimator (JANE) JANE matches your title, abstract, or keywords to millions of documents in MEDLINE to help determine the best journals in which to publish your research.
MEDLINE Because you are working in a medical field, it is helpful to know that journals included in MEDLINE, accessible from the PubMed search platform, must meet a number of standards in order to be indexed. There are other subsets of PubMed, such as PMC, a free archive of biomedical literature which includes some journals included for MEDLINE. Although many PMC journals are credible, being “indexed for MEDLINE” is consistently an indicator of journal quality. In order to check journal indexing status, visit the NLM catalog: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nlmcatalog/journals For more information: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/factsheets/dif_med_pub.html.
PsycINFO covers the professional and academic literature in psychology and related disciplines including medicine, psychiatry, nursing, sociology, education, pharmacology, physiology, linguistics, and other areas. Inclusion of a journal title in PsycINFO generally indicates high quality. For journal title list, see: http://www.apa.org/pubs/databases/psycinfo/coverage.aspx.
