Journal Impact Factor - a poor predictor

Die AGU unterstützt DORA, die San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (https://sfdora.org)


"Becoming a signatory of the Declaration of Open Research Assessment (DORA). This emphasizes moving away from metric-based approaches to assessment. In publications, this means de-emphasizing the Journal Impact Factor, long used as an indicator of journal prestige but actually a poor predictor of the value of any particular paper published in that journal or of the merits of any particular author. As recommended by the Declaration, AGU will continue to provide a wide variety of data regarding its journals."
