Reliable Relevance and Impact Indexes for Scientific Journals
iJ Bibliometrics - Implementing Reliable Relevance and Impact Indexes for Scientific Journals


PRESENTATION
  • iJ Bibliometrics proposes transparent and objective indexes to measure the relevance and impact of scientific journals. It is the best solution to solve the manipulation of citations perpetrated by the multinationals that control both scientific publications and impact indexes at the same time.
  • In a first step, these indexes are applied to archaeological journals, but their usefulness is extended to all scientific journals.
  • We offer as an example three lists (see below): the 100 best international archaeological journals, the 100 best Spanish scientific journals, and the 80 best international scientific journals.
  • These indexes are the best. They are more accurate and reliable than others.

METHODOLOGY
  • The first index (iJ0) is directly proportional to scientific production (number of articles published for three years, 2014–2015–2016), and indirectly proportional to the age of the journal (years since its foundation). All parameters are expressed in decimal logarithms.
  • The second index (iJ) considers three parameters. It is directly proportional to scientific production (number of articles published for three years, 2014–2015–2016) and to the citations that received in 2017 the articles published in the previous three years, and indirectly proportional to the age of the journal (years since its foundation). All parameters are expressed in decimal logarithms.
  • Citations are manipulable. In fact, the multinationals that control them are responsible of this bad practice that benefits their journals and harms others that are not.
  • The modus operandi is simple: citations of some competitive journals are omitted, and as these multinationals publish many journals, a sophisticated cross-citation machinery is set in motion to increase the impact index of them.
  • Nonetheless, we include citations to offer a complete set of indexes acceptable by everyone. That is our strength.
