Where to publish?

An interesting and useful service is now made available to authors from Lund University (courtesy of Håkan Carlsson).

"Journal Info service gives fast and simple access to journal information: general, accessibility, cost (quality and each area is supported by a number of relevant points). You can e.g. find in which databases a journal is indexed, how much it costs for the library to subscribe and which alternative OA journals exists. A total of 18,000 journals are currently supported in the database."

Library and information science area, for instance, covers 319 titles. When checking "quality" one can see databases indexing the journal, journal eigenfactor, article influence, FRIDA score and ISI impact factor (available to Journal Citation Report subscribers).
One can also check what are alternative titles with open access.
