Whenever researchers write a paper, the same question occurs: "Where to submit?" In this work, we introduce WTS, an open and interpretable NLP system that recommends conferences and journals to researchers based on the title, abstract, and/or keywords of a given paper. We adapt the TextCNN architecture and automatically analyze its predictions using the Integrated Gradients method to highlight words and phrases that led to the recommendation of a scientific venue. We train and test our method

WTS achieves an Accuracy@5 of approximately 83 % for AI papers and 95 % in the field of medicine. It is open source 1 and available for testing on https://wheretosubmit.ml.
