Introduction: journal selection for publication purposes is one of the concerns of biomedi-cal researchers. They apply various criteria for choosing appropriate journal. Here, we have tried to collect main criteria biomedical researchers use to select a journal to submit their works. Methods: we collected these criteria through focus group conversations with researchers during our careers, feedbacks from participants of our scientific writing work-shops and non-systematic review of some related literature. Results: we have presented a summative and informative guidance in the selection of journals for biomedical paper submission and publication. Conclusion: Categorized criteria as a mnemonic tool for au-thors may help the authors in journal selection process. © 2012 by Tabriz University of Medical Sciences.
