Evaluating Journal Quality & Impact Online


Participants will explore tools for evaluating journal quality and appropriateness for publication, particularly how to avoid 'predatory' or exploitative journals and publishers.  Journal impact is often measured using quantitative methods such as citation counts, h-index, and journal impact factors;. impact can also be evaluated qualitatively.:,Activities during the workshop will include: retrieving journal metrics via Scimago (Scopus) and Journal Citation Reports (Web of Science).  Participants will  also gain  experience looking up Open Access (OA) journals using  lists and directories such as Beall’s list. Finally, we will review some popular bibliographic management tools for collecting and organizing publications and supporting literature.
