Publishing a Journal Paper in the Digital Heritage Area
Ilaria Meliconi, Gabriele Guidi and Roberto Scopigno

Practically every day in this era of easy on-line publishing we receive emails proposing technologically advanced new journals for publishing our research. Every new journal promises fantastic coverage in our area of interest, but this does not always turn out to be true, and publishing in the wrong outlet may mean that good research goes to waste in the sense that it is isolated in the wrong research community. In order to guarantee high publication quality, the most important journals have started to pay attention to publishing ethics for avoiding plagiarism; they guarantee a reasonable IPR management; and they support open-access policies for having the broadest possible audience. Thanks to these efforts impact factor metrics like SJR, SNIP or h-index may progressively grow, guaranteeing the best diffusion for the results of research. In the highly interdisciplinary field of Digital Heritage many journals have popped up focusing on specialized topics. In this panel Elsevier , a well-established publisher with a record stretching back centuries, will give an overview of its internal policies, and three major journals in the area from different publishers, here represented by their editors-in-chief, will discuss their scientific focus, reviewing policies, rejection rates, average publishing time and other information of interest for the scholars.
