I am a graduate student and I've written a paper. It's not that great, but I'm okay with it. (Honestly, it's decent original data but a bit of a hodgepodge of ideas/starts from people who moved on or were too busy. I just finished collecting data for a second paper I plan to be much more proud of).
So this paper isn't good enough to get into my original target journal, biotechnology and bioengineering. Buuut how do I find a very similar journal, just with -1.5 impact factor?
I tried the journals my references published in: None were appropriate
I tried journals my group recently published in: Again, fail.
Any suggestions? The paper is currently tailored to an engineering audience but I guess I could retailor it (again).
