SAGE Research Methods Overview

Using the Methods Map in SAGE Research Methods

Cabells provides multiple quality metrics for over 11,000 journals (Whitelist) and a searchable database of deceptive or predatory journals (Blacklist). You will have full access to search both the Whitelist and the Blacklist. The Whitelist provides journal information, evaluation metrics, and submission details. The Blacklist provides information about publishers and journals with deceptive (or “predatory”) practices. The information in Cabells can be used to help you determine where to publish and when gathering information for promotion and tenure.
