Ulf Sandström, guest researcher at Örebro University and researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology KTH Stockholm, Sweden
Speech at the conference National Research Journals: Quantity and Quality on March 18th, 2015 in Vilnius, Lithuania.
How can quality of journals be measured in national research assessments?
What is the role of domestic journals?
Do domestic journals have a significant role in careers of scientists?
This presentation will focus on available methodologies for evaluation of journals and will try to explore to what extent it is possible and maybe necessary to develop methods for measures of papers instead of measures for journals. In the presentation we will give an outline of an evaluation system including papers in national and international journals.
