I recently completed some clinical research and my advisor wants me to write up a paper for publication. He has a lot of connections and told me he would take care of finding the right journal for publication. However, given that I'm an undergrad writing on medical conditions, it's almost certain than the journal will be 2nd tier or probably worse. On the other hand, I spoke with a professor who oversees all undergrad research at my school (large public) and she was eager for me to submit my paper to my school's undergraduate science journal, citing the need for more clinical research papers. The undergrad journal is pretty big, but it's affiliated with the school and only contains undergraduate publications. Though publishing it in the undergrad journal would be way less of hassle (it gets reviewed by students rather than scientists), I think publishing in a scientific journal has more prestige. But, at the same time, if I submit to something like "Annals of Cambodian Medicine" (hypothetically) the paper may lose some credibility. Has anyone else had the same problem or have any opinions to offer? Thanks.
