Reviewing Journals

Peer-reviewed journals are at the heart of scientific enquiry, but there are differences between journals. We can look at the general reputation of journals, we can check if they are indexed in the SSCI, we can check the impact factor and related measures, or we can ask colleagues about their experience with a particular journal. This is where SciRev comes in, a website where you can share your experience (good or bad) with a particular journal. While entirely subjective, unverified, and biased by self-selection, the website can surely give another view on whether a journal is a suitable outlet for a given piece of research, like the average turnaround time or the number of reviews.
