Jane: suggesting journals, finding experts

Bioinformatics. 2008 Mar 1;24(5):727-8. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btn006. Epub 2008 Jan 28.


Summary: With an exponentially growing number of articles being published every year, scientists can use some help in determining which journal is most appropriate for publishing their results, and which other scientists can be called upon to review their work. Jane (Journal/Author Name Estimator) is a freely available web-based application that, on the basis of a sample text (e.g. the title and abstract of a manuscript), can suggest journals and experts who have published similar articles.
