Contents:
Chapter 1 Introduction; 1.1 The Scholarly Journal; 1.1.1 Definitions; 1.1.2 Emergence and Development; 1.2 Application and Developments of Journal Evaluation; 1.3 Multidimensional Journal Evaluation; 1.3.1 Inability of a Single Metric; 1.3.2 Multidimensionality; 1.4 Case Study; References; Chapter 2 Journal Output; 2.1 Output Indicators; 2.1.1 Number of Issues and Documents; 2.1.2 Document Length; 2.1.3 Document Titles; 2.1.4 Document Types; 2.1.5 References; 2.1.6 Publishing Language; 2.2 Producers of Output; 2.2.1 Authors; 2.2.2 Institutions; 2.2.3 Countries; Summary; References.
Summary: Scientific communication depends primarily on publishing in journals. The most important indicator to determine the influence of a journal is the Impact Factor. Since this factor only measures the average number of citations per article in a certain time window, it can be argued that it does not reflect the actual value of a periodical. This book defines five dimensions, which build a framework for a multidimensional method of journal evaluation. The author is winner of the Eugene Garfield Doctoral Dissertation Scholarship 2011.
