Hi you guys there,

I am trying to write a paper on author productivity and publishing in scholarly journals. I have read a lot about this topic and insistently some of you guys talk about the need for an author to  publish in "an International journal". But what is an international journal? What features should have a journal to be international? It really exist an international Journal? 

When we talk about books, we tend not to think in an international book, or an international dissertation, or an international grey literature. This way of thinking only show up with journals. 

I hope some of you can help me to clarified this issue.

Thank you very much for all you help.
