Recommended Publishing Outlets

Publishing through high-quality academic outlets is very important for the image of the University and the professional growth of staff and postgraduate students. Thus, researchers in selecting publication outlets must ensure their credibility in order not to engage in fruitless efforts of getting published in questionable publishing outlets that would have no impact on their academic progression and University image. Hence, this policy provides general guidelines to ensure staff members and students do not become victims of predatory publishers. Therefore, the following journal rankings and databases are recommended as outlets for staff and students to consider when deciding where to publish their research.
