This tool matches a draft abstract with the best-matching open access journals. Find somewhere to submit your work by pasting your abstract below!

This will take 1 to 2 minutes. Maybe a good time to refill your coffee?
This tool compares the similarity of user-submitted abstracts with abstracts from the Directory of Open Access Journals,
and provides a list of the 5 top matching journals.
It is not meant to be forensic (it won’t tell you what journal an abstract came from), but rather it is meant to be serendipitous (maybe you’ll discover a new
journal that you like!).
While other journal matching projects exist, to my knowledge none of them are fully open source and fully interdisciplinary.
All of the code for this project is openly licensed and is available on Github,
as is the code for the underlying matching algorithm, spaCy. Both use an MIT license.
The matcher's recommendations are also all open access.
This application was built by Mark Eaton at the City University of New York,
with the support of a Google Cloud Platform Credit grant. The computationally intensive data processing runs on a "serverless" Google Cloud Function.
