Finding out a journal's scope (manuscript suitability)

If the paper is suitable for the journal, please submit using the Submit Manuscript button on the journal’s homepage. The paper will be submitted to the Editor in Chief for initial assessment. If the paper is found suitable, it will be sent out for peer review. If not, a transfer will be suggested where applicable. You will be notified shortly in any case. 

A list of journals can be found on SpringerLink where you can browse by the title or use the search function to enter a key term.
