Where to publish?

Here’s a fun application that matches a journal to your research: Jane: the Journal/Author Name Estimator

To see what would happen, I fed a few of my research projects to Jane. Apparently I’m supposed to submit all my work to Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution. In some sense that’s reassuring. I just had a paper accepted there.

On closer inspection though, Jane does a terrible job of indexing taxonomy. Most of the prime journals where taxonomy is published- Zootaxa comes to mind- don’t register.  It is as if the entire discipline didn’t exist.
