Do you need advice about where to publish your research? Need further clarification on a status of a journal before sending in your publication? Just fill up this form or contact us at and we will get back to you.

More tips on how to avoid predatory journals (from UTM Librarian’s perspectives) are also available here.

Take a look at the Think.Check.Submit checklists to help you identify trustworthy journals and publishers –>

Alternatively, you might want to take a look into the list of potential predatory journals and publishers (known as Beall’s List). These lists are by no means comprehensive and authoritative, but may be useful to authors looking for a journal to publish in –>
