I have written several papers, all of them got accepted (by different journals) with only minor (or even very minor) revisions. Naturally, I am happy about having my research published, especially since I am only in the first half of my PhD.
But I recently read a comment (to an unrelated question) that said:
The other half of the advice: If your papers are always accepted the first place you sent them, then you are aiming too low.
That made me wonder: If my papers are not only always accepted, but even accepted with only very minor requests for change, should I try to submit future papers to other journals with higher impact factors/ better reputation/ higher rejection rate?
As an added note: I work on a pretty interdisciplinary side-branch of engineering, and thus, there is quite a wide variety of journals that I could submit my articles to. The journals I have submitted my previous articles to have an ok impact factor/reputation, but are not at the top. The choice to submit there was made by a combination of: previous submissions from our working group, suggestions from my supervisor, research into what journals might be a good fit as well as where articles covering similar topics have been published previously.
