I know how much vitriol is tossed out about review articles but I'm writing one, so save the complaining for that topic for later. My dilemma comes down to where do I publish this thing. My thought is to put this thing in a field specific journal that many people in my field already read, that way I think there it will have maximum visibility to the readership of my field. But the issue is that the journal is an Elsevier one and thus my article will be locked behind a paywall and thus limit those outside of my immediate field from reading it.
The other publication option that I have given thought to is putting the review in an open access journal so that its visible for all. The only problem is there are a lot of dogass OA journals out there that no one reads and there is not one that is specific to my field of interest. So while anyone could read the article my target audience may miss it, because the review is popping up outside of what they normally read.
So dear reader, what are your suggestions.
