LiU Journal Check Up

It is important to evaluate journals for publication, before accepting a referee-assignment or editorship. The LiU Journal Check-up provides a simple evaluation of academic journals.

  • Presents key bibliometric data
  • Gives an indication of the rank and seriousness of the journal. (beware of predatory journals!)
  • Presents possibilities for parallel publishing, which is important to increase citation for your article

In order to use the LiU Journal Check Up, you need to insert the journal ISSN-number. The ISSN-number is found on the journal homepage but, more time efficient, on the subscription database Ulrichs web (log in via the library proxy for access if you are not on campus). Please note that there usually are two different ISSNs: one for print and one for online. Sometimes it is valuable to try both).

Enter the ISSN for a journal in the box below. Feedback is welcome via email: ep@ep.liu.se.
