Academic Publishing Guide, designed for Drake Faculty and Researchers

Cabells is back at Drake!

After a short hiatus, and many requests, Drake has restored access to Cabells! Currently we have access to "Journalytics," which was formerly known as the "white list." We do not have access to the Predatory Reports and journals list:

Cabells Journalytics provides complete contact and publication information, multiple quality metrics, submission experience data, and peer review indicators for over 11,000 journals across 18 academic disciplines. In addition to the journals database, contextual metrics such as the Cabell's Classification Index, the Difficulty of Acceptance tool, and the Institutional Publishing Activity tool help researchers search, filter, and compare journals when making decisions about publication and to assist administrators in evaluating publication records.
