Scholarly publishing models are rapidly changing. New models like PeerJ take publishing to a new level, but it is also easy to get scammed by plenty of predatory journals.
When you are ready to publish, here are some places you can consider to choose an appropriate journal for your manuscript.

The JANE is a journal locator for biomedical papers. When you provide time and/or abstractor, JANE will compare your manuscript with millions of documents in PubMed and make recommendations for you.
Journal Targeter (JOT)
A portal by Townsend Lab at Yale University’s School of Public Health to help authors find appropriate journals for their manuscripts. Provide title, abstract and reference for your paper and JOT will retrieve a list of matching journals for you.
