I've finished master studies in mathematics. Now I'm working on some papers, but I'm not so familiar with journals. I've submitted papers in some journals with impact factor, but it was rejected, while some other journals accept them (I doubt they accept anything for money). My question is: how can I find an appropriate journal for a modest paper?

    I would suggest first identifying the Journals that you have read where (a) the subject matter is similar, and (b) which publishes modest advancements to your field. – user479 Dec 8 '14 at 20:12

    The Australian Mathematical Society journal rankings might be useful. You could try submitting to a journal with a rating of 'B', for instance. – Trevor Wilson Dec 8 '14 at 20:51

    Beware of predatory journals. Here's the famous Beall's list: scholarlyoa.com/publishers scholarlyoa.com/individual-journals Also read about this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCIgen It's very funny and will show you how far these journals go just to get your money. – Formagella Dec 9 '14 at 18:57

    I would not try to do this without reading the paper. Consider the journals that you cite frequently in the paper. I recommend picking the journal before you start writing to ensure the paper is written to fit the journal. – Anonymous Physicist Dec 9 '14 at 19:24

    @Emin: The question in your last post makes sense. I think it has been answered already here: academia.stackexchange.com/questions/32394/… – Oswald Veblen Dec 10 '14 at 1:59
