Your publication strategy may vary depending on your career goals and your type of publication (academic article, book, blog posting, op-ed?).

If you are planning to submit a journal article, read the the the individual journal's submission policy carefully to ensure that your scholarship meets all of the journal's submission criteria including topic, paper length and publication type.

For most academic social science journals, you must wait for an acceptance or rejection response from peer evaluators before submitting your journal article for another publication so you should chose your first publication with care

You can view the HKS Library's Publishing Your Scholarship for a select list of resources that you can use to identify possible publication venues.

HKS affiliates are welcome to schedule a customized research consultation to discuss specific Harvard Library resources, websites and tools you can use to evaluate journals and to identify other publication options.
