Cabell's is a resource that specializes in connecting researchers, librarians, and academics to the journal titles they need. Cabell’s was founded in 1978 by Dr. David W. E. Cabell. Dr. “Dave” Cabell, as a young professor of Management, sought an easier way for tenure committees, professors, researchers and doctoral students to find detailed information for the purpose of evaluating and selecting academic journals.
Today, over 36 years later, Cabell’s has expanded into an interactive, searchable database which covers 18 distinct academic disciplines and contains information about more than 11,000 journals. Through our continued partnerships with major academic publishers, journal editors, scholarly societies and accreditation agencies, we provide accurate, up-to-date details about academic journals to more than 750 universities world-wide.
Our goal at Cabell’s is to facilitate scholarly communication by helping researchers select the most appropriate outlets for their work. We specialize in providing manuscript and review process guidelines, journal quality metrics, submission criteria and all the other information researchers might need to match their manuscripts with the journals most likely to be interested in publishing their work. Through our journal ratings feature, Cabell’s also allows researchers to share their own submission and publication experiences and to gain valuable insight from their colleagues’ experiences. A comprehensive database of journal submission information, Cabell’s is a powerful tool designed to help researchers search, filter and compare journals when making decisions about publication.
