The Directory helps you to determine which journals typically publish manuscripts similar to yours or could be the best fit for your manuscript. The index in each Directory helps you match the characteristics of your manuscript to the topic areas the journal emphasizes and acceptance rate.


The Directory also includes information on the style and format of most journals to further assist you in organizing and preparing your manuscripts. If a journal has its own set of manuscript guidelines, a link to these guidelines is provided in the Directory. Additionally, each entry indicates the use of a standard set of publication guidelines by a journal. For example, some journals use the Chicago Manual of Style or the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.


Furthermore, the Directory describes the type of review process used by the editor(s) of a journal, type of review, number of reviewers, acceptance rate, time required for review, availability of reviewers' comments, number of copies required and manuscript topics. Information on the journals printed and electronic launch dates and ISSNs are also provided.

The company Massmann International Booksellers was founded in 1989 by trained booksellers Dorothea and Kay Massmann in Hamburg and has operated since then as supplier and service provider for university and research libraries in the Federal Republic of Germany. We specialize in the procurement of books and monographic continuation orders from German and foreign publishers and run a large journals department. Our service includes procurement of software, eBooks and CD-ROMs too.

Our innovative company employs thirteen permanent, qualified members of staff, who passes on their knowledge and experience to younger members. At present there are two such trainees.

We have a clear policy of closely following the needs and expectations of our customers and providing a professional service. This includes quick and effective responses to changes in the procurement and distribution markets. Short processing and delivery times, online status reports on current orders, taking over outsourcing projects and our well-trained staffs, who understand the special requirements of libraries, are the basis for our long-standing, trustworthy business relationships. Two of our main company aims are the maintenance and promotion of our creative and innovative approach in order to ensure a high degree of customer satisfaction and permanent improvement of processing methods for the benefit of our customers.
