Measuring the Value of Journals | Periodicals Price Survey 2014

Measuring the Value of Journals | Periodicals Price Survey 2014 | Research Tools Box | Scoop.it
Journal price data is important for budget management processes, but price alone is not the sole factor determining value. Some metrics, like Impact Factor, have become important in assessing value, and similar value metrics will only increase in importance in the future. The implementation of the Counter 4 during 2014 will expand the availability of usage data from journals, databases, ebooks, and multimedia to support better decision-making. Building upon COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) and working with the digital object identifier (DOI) and ORCID (open researcher and contributor ID) identifier, the PIRUS (Publisher and Institutional Repository Usage Statistics) Code of Practice is designed to provide usage data at the individual article level, consolidating usage across platforms.

Journal Impact Factors: Uses and Misuse

Journal Impact Factors: Uses and Misuse | Research Tools Box | Scoop.it
Infocus - The Forum Newsletter from Thomson Reuters
Nader Ale Ebrahim's insight:

In recent years, some observers in academia and publishing have criticized instances in which Journal Impact Factor figures, subsequent to their publication by Thomson Reuters, have been misused. There are instances where the Journal Impact Factor has been improperly extended to the evaluation of individual authors. The faulty inference is that if an author publishes a paper in a journal with a comparatively high Journal Impact Factor, this is somehow an automatic reflection of the quality of the author's work—and even, by extension, of the author's institution. This is a misuse of the Journal Impact Factor that is not condoned by Thomson Reuters. The company instead recommends the use of other citation-based metrics in InCitesTM specifically designed to assess the output and impact of people, papers or programs.

There are many authors who make legitimate use of Journal Impact Factor in targeting their manuscripts at high-impact journals in their specialty areas. Publication in such journals, however, and the Journal Impact Factor of the journals themselves, should not be hastily treated as some kind of surrogate to replace detailed, informed assessments of individual authors and their published research. Thomson Reuters has consistently sought to promote understanding of the Journal Impact Factor, its limitations, and its proper application.
