I saw this on twitter and realised what a brilliant idea this was.
I realised that there are particular types of journals that I’m more likely to target regularly than others and it would be a good idea to start summarising the important little details to have them accessible. So I fired up my Notion (I’ll talk more about this in a later post) and started a table. I created columns for:
- Journal name
- Paper type
- Word limit
- Abstract word limit
- The number of key words allowed
- Notes (such as the word limit includes or excludes the references and other little quirks)
- A link to the author guide for that journal
- The impact factor of that journal
See a blurry screenshot of my table here:
I only created this about a month ago but I’m amazed at how much I’ve already been referencing this table and been adding to it.
So this was just a short post to advertise this idea. Hopefully you find it as helpful as I did. Do you do something similar? How can I improve this even more?
