Reviews: From Systematic to Narrative: Publishing the Results

Where to Publish

Hopefully, before you start the review you will have some idea where or in what journal you wish to publish your review.  You will want to look at the journal and especially its instructions to authors to see if they even publish the kind or type of review you are performing.  If you do identify one or two journals in your field, go ahead and print out their author instructions so that you can use the instructions as a guide while you are performing your review.   Below is a link to one set of author instructions.  GOOD LUCK!!

Example and instructions to authors from BJCP (British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology)


There is also a really neat website called JANE (Journal/Author Name Estimator) that will assist you in finding a journal in which to publish your article. This is how their web site describes JANE: "Have you recently written a paper, but you're not sure to which journal you should submit it? Or maybe you want to find relevant articles to cite in your paper? Or are you an editor, and do you need to find reviewers for a particular paper? Jane can help!

Just enter the title and/or abstract of the paper in the box, and click on 'Find journals', 'Find authors' or 'Find Articles'. Jane will then compare your document to millions of documents in Medline to find the best matching journals, authors or articles."


Instructions to Authors

This is a link to the Mulford Library at the University of Toledo.  This site lists over 6,00 links to journals in the health sciences.  Sometimes the links go directly to the journal's instructions for authors and sometimes to the main web site for the journal.  In the latter case, you will have to look around the page to see how to get to the author's instructions.
