Methodology of the Czech Council for Research, Development and Innovation defines the publication outputs (articles in journals, conference papers) and which criteria they must meet for the national evaluation of these outputs.

Web of Science and Scopus are an essential information base for the evaluation of science and research in the Czech Republic.

Web of Science

Web of Science (produced by Thomson Reuters) is a multidisciplinary bibliographic database of references and abstracts of articles from prestigious scientific journals from around the world. Web of Science contains “Core Collection” which provides access to more than 55 million records from top journals, conference proceedings and books in the fields of natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts.

Detailed instructions on how to search the Web of Science Core Collection.

Web of Science provides a list of journals with impact factor via the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database.

JCR provides the following information:

  • the most frequently cited journals in given field,
  • journals with the most current topics in given field,
  • journals with the greatest influence in given field,
  • magazines with most articles issued in given field,
  • comparison of data from given field to the standard in the field (benchmark).

ERIH PLUS is a list of research journals in the field of humanities and social sciences incl. basic information on the same journals.

ERIH PLUS was established by transferring the original contents of ERIH from the European Science Foundation (ESF) server to the Norwegian Social Science Data Services (NSD) server residing in Bergen, Norway. The ERIH was renamed ERIH PLUS in early July 2014.

Advantages of ERIH PLUS in comparison to the lists previously used:

  • Includes social sciences
  • New disciplines for inclusion of journals (at present in the application form only, not in the search)
  • New information about journals – eISSN, URL, status, peer review
  • Information about the relation of journal to Open Access (SHERPA RoMEO)
  • Offers feedback for each journal
  • Included are also journals published outside the EU
  • New criteria for inclusion of new journals in the lists
  • New admission procedures for new journals
  • Categories A,B/INT1, INT2 and C/NAT have been replaced by the authorship (international, national, local)
  • Expert panels for the assessment of journals were cancelled – decisions are taken by the NSD, “in special cases” by the ERIH PLUS Advisory Group (ERIH PLUS Advisory Group)
