Quality of Journal Publication

In recent years, Malaysian universities have given greater weight to publication in good quality journal, especially in the four research-intensive universities (namely Universiti Malaya, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Universiti Putra Malaysia and Universiti Sains Malaysia). At the moment, the benchmark indicators used in Malaysia are journals included in  Scopus and WoS. For the former database, the list of journals can be downloaded directly from here (click for Excel file), while the latter requires subscription (which UMS Library did subscribe).

In Australia, discipline-specific journal ranking lists have been compiled at the national level to evaluate the quality of journal publication. The list compiled under the ERA initiative is available here (click for Excel file).
