A free web search engine for scientific publications.
If you are not able to find/open the article that you are looking for:
1.) Search for the journal in Hanna. Can you find it? Is it available electronically or in print? Is it available for the year/number where the article was published in?
2.) Google for the article. Sometimes it is available in full text somewhere else. It is a good idea to google just the title of the article (do not include vol and no).
3.) Contact the library: firstname.lastname@example.org. We might be able to find the article or order it for you.
There are many factors that you need to consider when assessing the quality of a journal:
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).
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 ulrichsweb.com. 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.
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.
Journals are categorized as follows according to the Ministry of Education and Culture:
