This question already has an answer here:
After doing research for a while, I figured out a topic (1) that nobody has done it before (2) and I think It's pretty cool and valuable (3) to the community in my field. So, I proposed the idea to my professor with some drafts. But, my professor told me to find out if there is any interest in the topic in the publishing industry (journals) If no one cares about that It's not worth it.
It's like I created a paradox. How can I find out the interests in the topic if nobody has done it before?
If you guys have any ideas or tips that can help me I would be really appreciated!
(1) I'm working on Fault Management Framework for Network Function Virtualization.
(2) I cannot find any relevant paper that employs it. They're mostly about Fault Management for SDN or cloud or on a specific problem whereas I want to design a complete solution.
(3) I think it is valuable because It will save time for the deployer/implementor by including all the best practices.
There'are several reasons why this question is different than the one at How to select a journal for publishing? because of:
It's not about selecting a journal to publish, It's about whether the journals are interested in my topic. I've already known which ones I want to publish to. It's just that I'm not sure if they're interested in my idea.
The question in which mine was marked as duplicated with is much broader than mine I think.
