What Journal Should We Submit Our Tobacco Article To?


Scout, Ph.D.
Director, The Fenway Institute’s Network for LGBT Health Equity

As we roll near the end of our five year cooperative agreement as the LGBT tobacco disparity network we’ve got a focus this year on getting key knowledge published. Of course while we self-publish many things, the highest standard (and for some the only standard) for publication is in peer-reviewed academic journals. But what journal should we target for different articles? To help create a list of likely prospects I just reviewed 6 months of CDC Media Network e-briefing on tobacco publications and from that compiled the following list of journals that include tobacco control articles. (I’ve actually skipped biomedical only journals). Hopefully this will help others consider what journals to consider for article submissions.

Journals with Highest Rates of Tobacco Publications

  • Tobacco Control
  • AJPH
  • MMWR
  • Nicotine & Tobacco Research

Other Journals with Tobacco Publications in Last Six Months

Some of the most actives ones are still at the top of this list. But hopefully there’s some others here you may not have thought about.
