Product Spotlight: Cabells Journalytics Medicine & Predatory Reports: Manage Your Publishing Risks and Opportunities (Sponsored)

The past few years have shown us how critical medical research is to our worldwide health and prosperity. Now, more than ever, it’s vital to make sure research is accurate, seen, and protected.

For more than four decades, Cabells has helped researchers make smart publishing decisions to enhance the impact of their work and careers. We are excited to launch our newest journal search platform dedicated to the medical research community—Journalytics Medicine & Predatory Reports.

Following years of competitive work, securing funding, or project planning—what are the last things you want to hear from researchers?

  • "My reputation was ruined because I submitted to a fake journal."
  • "Nobody read my published research."
  • "The journal website looked real to me."
  • "Predatory publishers tricked us and stole our funding."

These are all tragic endings we want to avoid.

So, where do you go when you're starting the long submission process, or you need to check the validity and quality of a specific medical journal?

You can venture out on your own, or you can rely on an established team of experts who collect all the journal data you need in one spot—saving you time, energy, and money.

Journalytics Medicine & Predatory Reports provides in-depth information on over 7,000 verified medical journals and 16,000 predatory journals. We’ve developed our fastest and most accurate search system so you can:

  • verify journal legitimacy
  • prep for submission with formatting, contact, and peer review details
  • find the best, high-quality journals in your specific field
  • discover how journals are improving (or worsening) over time
  • uncover hidden fees or other Open Access info like author rights
  • search through 37 medical disciplines and countless topics

Our data is comprehensive and flexible enough to be used by researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, and various institutions connected to the medical world like medical libraries, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.

Journalytics Medicine provides three ways to use our journal data based on your submission stage or institutional goals:

✅  Check - If you happen to know the title, ISSN, publisher, or any other relevant keyword, use our search and filters to allow for quick checks into our large databases.

🔎  Verify - If you need to confirm the validity of a journal that you suspect may be fake, predatory reports reveal insights and detailed lists of predatory violations based on severity and category.

⚖️  Evaluate - If you're ready to start comparing journal quality and prep your work for submission, you can use Journalytics data and our suite of metrics to find the best journal for your needs.
