How to read a scholarly journal article

Journal assessment

There are many factors that you need to consider when assessing the quality of a journal:

  • Journal ranking indicators:

Which databases index the journal? For example, is it indexed in Web of Science and/or Scopus? And what impact factors or citation analysis does the journal have in Web of Science and/or Scopus? How is the journal rated according to the Publication Forum (Julkaisufoorumi, Jufo) and/or Academic Journal Guide (AJG)?

See the following sections on  Journal ranking indicators (for example, Journal impact factor (JIF), Publication Forum (Jufo), Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP), and Academic Journal Guide (AJG) below).

  • Is the journal refereed (peer-reviewed)?

Peer analysis is a high-quality control measure of research before publication in a journal. UlrichsWeb contains general information about journals. You can check UlrichsWeb to get the information if an article in a journal undergoes peer review before publishing.

You can, firstly, search for the journal in the list of e-journals in Hanna. Then click on the SFX icon and choose If the line “Refereed” is indicated with “Yes” on the journal information page on UlrichsWeb, it means that the journal uses peer reviewers in the publication process.

  • Is a journal open access? Are you allowed to self-archive your article in Haris/DHanken?

Sherpa/Romeo provides information about what publishing rights authors have with a large number of journals. Read more about open access and self-archiving.

  • The journal's general information:

How are the journal’s circulation and coverage? How frequently is it published? How fast is an article from submission to publication? What are the journal’s acceptance/rejection rates?

The information can be found on the journal’s or publisher’s website. Some journals have "received" and "accepted" dates on the first page of their articles.

  • Refrain from submitting to predatory or pseudo journals and evaluate the integrity and reputation of the publication channel.

Predatory publishing is an exploitive academic publishing business model that involves charging publication fees to authors without checking articles’ quality and legitimacy and without providing other editorial and publishing services that legitimate academic journals provide, whether open access or not.

You can check List of Predatory Journals and see M Ángeles Oviedo-García. 2021. Journal citation reports and the definition of a predatory journal: The case of the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI). Research Evaluation, 1-15.

  • Journals' categories:

Journals are categorized as follows according to the Ministry of Education and Culture:

  1. Peer-reviewed scientific journal: Journals with Publication Forum rating level 1-3 or other scientific journals with peer review,
  2. Non-refereed scientific journal,
  3. Trade journal,
  4. Popularised journal, and
  5. Newspaper
