4. Citation databases
In a citation database you for example get information about who has cited an article and how many times an author has been cited. You can also list all articles citing the same source.
At Hanken you have access to two citation databases (available through Nelli):
- Web of Science (ISI Web of Knowledge) which includes Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, och Sciences Citation Index Expanded. Included journals are for example: European Journal of Marketing, Journal of Finance, Strategic Management Journal.
- Scopus produced by Elevier, includes journals such as International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management, Human Resource Management Journal, Journal of Economics and Business, Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money.
Journal assessments, such as Impact factors ( Web of Science) and SJR ( Scopus ) are made based on the amount of citations. Read more about Citation databases and Journal Assessment on the Bibliometrcs webpages.
5. Journal Assessment
Hanken uses a combination of Impact factors in Journal Citation Report ( ISI Web of Knowledge) and the Publication Forum rating when assessing the quality of a journal. Another general assessment tool is Ulrichsweb.
The national Publication Forum rating aims to serve as the quality indicator of the whole scientific publication production of universities in Finland. Following the Norwegian and Danish examples, the Publication Forum system is based on quality classification of scientific publication channels - journals, publication series and book publishers - in all research fields. The publication channels are divided into three levels (1 = basic; 2 = leading; 3 = top) by 23 field specific expert panels. The rating will be fully in use within the MinEdu funding model as of 2015 and it is used in the internal funding model at Hanken beginning from year 2013. The rating is available at http://www.tsv.fi/julkaisufoorumi/haku.php?lang=en. Articles presenting the results of original research, published in journals ranked on levels 1-3, are classified as A1 in the research database HARIS (review-articles as A2).
Journals not available in the Publication Forum rating are assessed by Ulrichsweb and based on information on the journal's home page. The easiest way to check whether an article undergoes peer review before publishing is to search for the journal in the list of ejournals in Nelli. Then click on the SFX icon and choose Ulrich's from the SFX menu. If the line Refereed: Yes are listed on the journal information tab it means that the journal uses peer reviewers in the publication process.
According to Ministry of Education. Publication Type Classification. Manual 2010 the journals are categorized as follows:
- Peer-reviewed scientific journal
Journals with Publication Forum rating level 1-3 or other scientific journal with peer review
- Non-refereed scientific journal
Scientific journal without peer review
- Trade journal
- Popularised journal
