Publishing: Quality indicators
This guide is designed to assist you with publishing academic research, including finding the right journal, journal impact factors, ERA, open access, publisher and data requirements, questions around copyright and tips from the experts.
Peer review is a major indicator of quality in academic publishing
Some databases and lists only include peer reviewed journals
Cabell's Directories (selection policy) and Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory indicate which journals are peer reviewed but lists may be out-of-date and it is always best to check the journal site itself
Based on Scopus data, the CiteScore is an indicator of the average number of citations a document will receive over a four year publication window. The CiteScore 2019 is calculated by dividing the number of citation received in 2016-2019 to articles, reviews, conference papers, book chapters and data papers by the number of publications indexed by Scopus and published in the same time period.
