Tips on e-journals

Evaluating scholarly publications

Remember that journals can be more or less influential! One way of figuring out how influential a journal is, is to look it up in Publication forum. They rate journals from 1-3 meaning 1 = basic, 2 = leading and 3 = top.

Another way of determining the impact factor of a journal is to check how often its articles are being cited in Journal Citation Reports.
