Think.Check.Submit supports researchers identify trusted journals for their research.

The campaign recommends authors consider the following when selecting an open access journal to publish with:

  • Do you or your colleagues know the journal?
    • Have you read any articles in the journal before?
    • Is it easy to discover the latest papers in the journal?
  • Can you easily identify and contact the publisher?
    • Is the publisher name clearly displayed on the journal website?
    • Can you contact the publisher by telephone, email, and post?
  • Is the journal clear about the type of peer review it uses?
  • Are articles indexed in services that you use?
  • Is it clear what fees will be charged?
    • Does the journal site explain what these fees are for and when they will be charged?
  • Do you recognise the editorial board?
    • Have you heard of the editorial board members?
    • Do the editorial board mention the journal on their own websites?
