Since SCOPUS is an Elsevier database, the best way to select a journal that’s indexed in SCOPUS would be to use Elsevier’s Journal Finder. This is a tool that helps you select journals based on your field and area of research. It will also give, for each journal that the search shows up, the average time to get to a first decision. Thus, you will also come to know whether any of the journals that are suitable for your paper will give a decision within four weeks. You can then go to the journal’s website and check whether they charge article processing charges (APCs).
