Kirstine's bookmarks 2019-06-29
Researchers may have difficulties sometimes to find an open-access journal matching their needs for quality, visibility, and relevance. The National Contact Point Open Access OA2020-DE have therefore put together a searchable list of 800 influential open-access journals from nearly all scientific fields. The list includes journals indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) featuring an above average SNIP factor. SNIP - Source Normalized Impact per Paper is a journal metric (CWTS Journal Indicators) that measures the average citation impact of the publications of a journal. Please bear in mind that every metric has its limitations. Journal metrics should not be applied to assess the value of individual research items / articles/ findings or even careers.
