Multidimensional Journal Evaluation : Analyzing Scientific Periodicals beyond the Impact Factor

Multidimensional Journal Evaluation : Analyzing Scientific Periodicals beyond the Impact Factor

Description

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.
