Welcome to the Scholarly Publishing Research Guide. This guide provides information about all stages of the scholarly publishing process, including writing, submitting your manuscript to a scholarly journal, the peer review process, open access pulishing and how to promote your published article to increase impact. 




What is a scholarly journal?

A scholarly journal publishes high-quality academic or scholarly content that includes original research articles, written by researchers and experts in a particular academic discipline. Generally, scholarly journals follow the peer review process where manuscripts submitted for publication are evaluated by editors and selected experts (peers).

How can I tell if a journal is scholarly or not?

  • Does the journal contain a list of editorial board members in the inside front cover or first few pages of an individual issue?
  • Does the journal provide information for authors regarding the peer review process?
  • Does the journal publish articles that offer new theories, report primary results of original research in an academic field, or summarize previous research?
  • Do articles include the source of information, such as author/date references in the text, footnotes or bibliographies?
  • Do the journal articles include the name and academic affiliation of the author at the beginning or end of the article? Articles in an academic journal are never anonymous.
