The Web of Science Group Master Journal List allows users to quickly view information about the extensive list of journals indexed in databases on the Web of Science platform, including Web of Science itself. As the organization that assigns impact factors, Web of Science maintains detailed information about articles published in thousands of high-quality academic journals.

One feature of the database is its ability to suggest journals that might be a good vehicle in which to publish your research. To use this feature, go to the link above and click on the button that says “Match Manuscript” (about halfway down the page). You will be prompted to sign in with your Endnote account – if you don’t have one, you can create one for free. Next, copy and paste your article title and abstract into the search boxes. You can filter results by categories such as language, frequency, and open access status. You will be able to view the impact factor of each title and link to its homepage and submission guidelines.
