in emacs, there are systematic ways to find out which shortcut is
associated with which command, and which command has what shortcuts.

This is describe-key and describe-function.

For detail, see:

In lisp modes, there are several commands to eval lisp code. Each has
a shortcut, and you may also define alias so you can type less.

(defalias 'eb 'eval-buffer)
(defalias 'er 'eval-region)
(defalias 'ee 'eval-expression)
(defalias 'elm 'emacs-lisp-mode)
(defalias 'eis 'elisp-index-search)

The C-j you mentioned is not a shortcut for any of them in any lisp
mode i know of.
