Identifying top 10 industry journals to publish

This service is for academic staff and researchers who want to publish in scientific journals with a high impact factor, i. e., journals that are highly valued in the relevant scientific field.

The librarian will provide the list containing the top ten influential journals so that the lecturer can then choose which of these journals to send his/her scientific article to.
