New Databases

Cabell’s Directory of Publishing Opportunities

Cabell’s Directory of Publishing Opportunities is a collection of directories of academic journals for the disciplines of business, education, and psychology. The purpose of the database is to help professors, students and researchers identify journals to which they can submit articles for publication. Each journal entry is in PDF format and provides relevant information to potential authors such as acceptance rate, type of review (blind, editorial, or peer), time to review, publication fees, and manuscript guidelines.

Directories of publishing opportunities are provided in the following areas:

  • Accounting
  • Economics and Finance
  • Management
  • Marketing
