A Guide to Journal Rankings

The community based assessment of scientific output including bibliometric indicators and rankings is becoming more and more important for researchers, publishers and libraries. Our Journal Ranking Guide (JRG) provides comprehensive information on more than 6.000 journals from different disciplines like economics, business studies, commerce and related social sciences. The database is maintained by our partner, the Institute for Employment Research of the Federal Employment Agency (IAB), and regularly updated for web presentation by ZBW. It comprises bibliometric information on journals and rankings and covers both top journals and well-established rankings in Economics and Business Studies. Moreover, it provides information on availability of top-ranked journals by linking to the German "Elektronische Zeitschriftenbibliothek" (EZB) and information on Open Access policies from publishers by linking to SHERPA/RoMEO list.
