LPL 811.01: Readings & Research II: Overview

This guide will give students in LPL 811.01 information on various journals in their field.


Students often lack information about the status of journals in their fields and thus cannot make the most informed decisions about where to seek to disseminate their work. This lack of knowledge can cause frustration and delays in moving a manuscript from submission to publication. If individuals are not targeting journals appropriately it can influence individual career advancement and success. In addition, it can affect the status and prestige of institutions, which can in turn influence application for admissions, success in securing external funding, etc.
