New guidelines for rewarding scientific publications

New guidelines for rewarding scientific publications

Hanken Foundation has rewarded scientific articles in accordance with certain guidelines since 2008. The indicator used has, however, not treated all subject equally and so the Foundation decided to revise the system starting on 1 May 2017.

The transitional period is one year, but the Foundation may consider prolonging the period later. The main points that have changed are as follows:

  1. The impact factor (IF) will be replaces by the SNIP-indicator from the citation database Scopus. That means that one citation has a stronger significance within a field with less citations all together. This will make the published articles more comparable.
  2. JUFO and AFG are included in the definition of the categories that are rewarded.
  3. A new top category is introduced for an article published in a journal of highest AJG-level and also included in the FT50. This reflects Hanken’s efforts for academic excellens.
  4. A post-print version is to be uploaded into Haris. This is necessary for Hanken to reach its open access goal.
  5. The Hanken Foundation will henceforth make decisions about the rewards on every board meeting. The Library will publish news about the articles that have been rewarded.

New instructions for how to upload articles into Haris

Researchers are asked to register information about the articles already when they are approved for publishing. When you have received information about when the article will be published you change the status in Haris into published, add the DOI-link and upload the post-print version (the last accepted peer-reviewed version which has been sent to the journal) of the article. In this way you are assured that the Library will notice your article.

By contacting you will always get help and guidance.
