Top Tiered Academic Journals by Discipline

This list of top tiered academic journals by discipline was provided by the directors representing each area represented at NeMLA. The directors were happy to share this list with us, but wanted us to remind everyone that selecting a journal is not just about its ranking. You should also determine where your research and interests would fit best, and consider the time each journal takes from submission to publication.
