Selecting a journal to submit a manuscript to is an important decision for
any researcher. To find out the factors that influence this decision for
early-career researchers, we conducted a survey of PhD students and
postdocs at Max Planck Institutes across Germany. The respondents worked in
a variety of fields including biology, medicine, chemistry, physics,
mathematics and the social sciences. As advocates of open access (OA), we
also wanted to find out how much early-career researchers knew about this
topic. A total of 314 PhD students and postdocs completed the survey, and
some of the results are discussed in this article.
