I have a bachelor degree, but am currently not enrolled in a university. I am finishing a paper that I would like to publish in a fitting journal. Of course the ideal outcome would be a highly respected journal, but it seems to me that the odds of getting published are higher in a less well known journal.
I am considering just submitting it to the most highly respected journal, then going down the list until its accepted. Is this the optimal strategy?
The downside might be that the odds of those highly respected journals accepting my paper are very slim, so that the process will take years.
thoughts on this?
(as a side question: I did the research mostly during my bachelor degree, but I wrote it down, and finished it up after finishing my degree. Would it be fraudulent to name my university as my affiliation?)
