Can I ask for a list of journals that are good enough to publish research work based on the topic related to cryptography?

I didn't see journal tag, hence I am thinking that it is not a place to ask about publishing etc., but only related to the research doubts etc.,

    $\begingroup$ Hmm, if you look at the title of your question then I'd say "yes" because you can certainly ask about topics within research journals. But for lists I unfortunately agree with e-sushi. Thanks for asking though, it's a good meta topic. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Academia might be a good place to ask about how to find a good journal to publish your work in (if that question hasn't been answered before, which is likely). Asking about specific journals is probably off-topic there as well, though. $\endgroup$

Generally, there aren’t many SE sites that allow such list-questions and Crypto.SE is no exception.

In fact, we even have an according close-reason which I’ll simply quote for informational purposes:

Requests for literature, software or similar recommendations are off-topic here. For details, see: Do we want “literature recommendations” and similar “list/subjective questions”?

If you follow the link, you’ll not only notice that that was the first question here at Crypto.SE meta, but you’ll also find the reasoning behind it.
