Stalking journals to submit my paper

by Forrest Sheng Bao http://fsbao.net

I published a first-author paper on ICTAI 2008 about epileptic EEG recognition. http://arxiv.org/abs/0804.3361

After that, I did some improvements, such as using raw data with artifacts, and cleared assumptions in that papers. Currently, the accuracy of using data with artifacts is 89%. So, I decide to write a new paper and submitted to a journal.

Now, I have five candidates:
But I feel like that the two IEEE Trans. don't fit the topic of my current work. Maybe AI in Medicine matches the best.

I also feel like that the SCI is really nothing. For example, IEEE Spectrum, is just a club magazine, not a scientific journal. Every member of IEEE can get it every month - I even never read it. But, it's in SCI, with a 0.933 impact factor. Another example, I have read a paper on IEEE Trans. on Information Technology in Biomedicine. Its experiment has nothing to do with the hypothesis it proposes.

We can't judge a journal or a paper by the IF. For example, there are many papers discussing Communism in China. They cited Mao Tse Tong's articles thousands of thousands of times. But, does Mao's article make sense?

I plan to dig down more on my work and submit it to a journal with good reputation, such as AI in Medicine.
