Specialist vs non-specialist journal

Recommended Posts



I am in the process of publishing my second academic journal article (going into third year PhD program in history) and (though I might be wrong) the chances are that I can get a fast-track publication in a specialist and interdisciplinary journal that is fairly new, but looks serious. On the other hand, I like the idea of running it with non-specialist history journal that will have a much broader readership. 

What do you think?

I'd defer to my advisor on something like this. In the end, I think the actual journal name is not so much a big deal unless you are worried about a bad reputation along with the name. In my field, I don't think people keep up with the literature by going to their favourite journals and reading what's inside. Instead, they have web tools that can search all the journals for various topics and then they'll read what's new. I'll assume similar databases and pre-print servers might exist in History too?
