I have written a journal paper and my supervisor has asked me to submit it in a journal whose impact factor should be close to one. I have searched for journals of Springer, Elsevier and IEEE and made a list . As I don't have any experience with journal submission. I am confused in many points.
1- What is an "ISSUE" in journal?
2- Importance of impact factor journals
3- I have found some related journals but they are not open access and neither call for paper is mentioned.
4- One Springer journal is relevant but its current issue is not relevant http://www.springer.com/engineering/signals/journal/13638
5- What will happen if i submit in a journal that is not open access and call for paper is not mentioned?
What should i do now? Please suggest me? As my supervisor said he does not know more about them :(
