Abstract

This discussion paper explores the intricate challenges faced by researchers in the selection of suitable journals for the publication of their research findings. Although numerous studies have delved into the hurdles encountered during the publication process, this paper specifically addresses the complexities associated with journal selection. The focus of this paper is on the challenges confronted by nurse researchers, encompassing issues such as impact factor bias, alignment of relevance and scope, and ethical considerations. These challenges, if not navigated effectively, can impede the dissemination of valuable nursing research. By acknowledging and addressing challenges head-on, researchers can contribute meaningfully to the nursing field, ensuring that their work makes a lasting impact. Ultimately, this paper underscores the need for continuous dialogue and flexible approaches to surmount the challenges associated with journal selection and enhance the overall quality and relevance of nursing research contributions.
