Abstract

Selecting suitable journals for publishing manuscripts for publication is one of the most essential processes before publishing any manuscript. Finding the relevant journal is a key factor which proves one's work valuable to the entire society. The final output and the performance of one's research is ultimately validated only if the paper is published in a right journal. One of the greatest mistakes that the authors make is submitting their manuscript in an unsuitable journal. The author should also consider all the six parameters such as Scope, Cite Score, Impact factor, Acceptance Rate, Time to first decision and Time to publication. Some authors only consider the acceptance rate and the time to first decision and publication as their main criteria. The author should consider all these parameters while publishing the paper. An algorithm named DEAR is used in the work which can consider all these parameters to find the right journal among the various alternatives.  This DEAR method serves as a user-friendly method in selecting the best journal.
