Journals for rookies

Inoue Methods作成者にはよく、査読依頼とともに、投稿依頼や案内が来ます。





Invitation to submit an article

以下はIM Mentorに来た論文投稿の招待状です。公開も問題ないと思いますので、ここに記載します。このように多くの雑誌が、論文投稿を期待しています。この雑誌に関して言いますと、投稿から採否まで28日とスピーディであることを謳っています。


特に若手研究者に関して言いますと、IM MentorはMedlineに掲載されることが大事と思っていますので、こうした雑誌は考慮に値いすると思います。
