Think Check Submit

About Think Check Submit

Think Check Submit is a global campaign to help researchers identify trusted journals for their research. It is a simple checklist that researchers can use to assess the credentials of a journal or a publisher. The 3-step approach encourages researchers to ‘Think’ about whether the journal to which they are submitting their research is a trusted journal, to ‘Check’ the journal against a set of criteria to ensure it is right for their work, and to ‘Submit’ their work only if the journal adheres to certain standards and criteria.

The campaign has been produced with the support of a coalition from across the scholarly communications community in response to discussions about deceptive publishing.
