Journal evaluation is a complex task. The quality of a journal can be evaluated for different reasons using different methods, and thus different evaluations often offer differing resul ts. Researchers need information about which journals they shoul d send their manuscri pts to for publication. Evaluation information is also needed when deciding on subscriptions to journals. As many academics and researchers quickly come to understand, finding out how your work is being used by others can be a tricky business. In the past academics and researchers have had relatively few tools at hand for finding out whi ch bi ts of thei r work are appreci ated and used by other academics. Recently now by using a combination of the easily available tools-Publish or Perish, Google, and Web of Science-may provide the best way for academics to measure various areas of impact.Thi s article strives to make understand the available evaluation tools for journals and how these can be utilized to get the desired analysis of journals.

Abstract


Journal evaluation is a complex task. The quality of a journal can be evaluated for different reasons using different methods, and thus different evaluations often offer differing resul ts. Researchers need information about which journals they shoul d send their manuscri pts to for publication. Evaluation information is also needed when deciding on subscriptions to journals. As many academics and researchers quickly come to understand, finding out how your work is being used by others can be a tricky business. In the past academics and researchers have had relatively few tools at hand for finding out whi ch bi ts of thei r work are appreci ated and used by other academics. Recently now by using a combination of the easily available tools-Publish or Perish, Google, and Web of Science-may provide the best way for academics to measure various areas of impact.Thi s article strives to make understand the available evaluation tools for journals and how these can be utilized to get the desired analysis of journals.
