  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Why to publish? Get recognition for your work; Share your knowledge with others; acquire new contacts; Get feedback from the reviewers; Add to your CV;
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Where to publish? Dierent quality standards, selectiveness and impact: Journals more space (usually about 20 pages); more thorough reviews; more impact (especially long-term impact); more highly rated by selection/promotion committees; Conference proceedings faster process; quality of reviews depends on your luck; you have to pay conference fees; direct contacts can be made at the conference;
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? What to check before submitting? Avoid poor quality journals and conferences;
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where?

(2) Before sending check: Where the proceedings are published/reputation of the journal; Programme committee; Submission topics; Submission guidelines;
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Other options Special issues at the journal; Special issues connected to workshop; Open-access digital archives of preprints, e.g. http:/arxiv.org/
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Publications as a performance indicator Some universities use the amount and quality of publications as a performance indicator for the researchers; Dierent types of publications get more value; monographs; book chapters; journal papers; conference proceedings; handbooks;
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Quality of journal publications Quartile rankings - journals are ranked based on various bibliometric indices; impact-factor Journal Citation Reports by Thompson Reuters (database Web of Science) - 12,500 journals; SJR (SCIMago Journal Rank), calculated by a research group SCImago in a partnership and based on data of Elsevier (database Scopus) - 21,000 journals; Identify level of citations for a journal; NB! Many journals from humanities do not have an ocial impact factor, therefore it is recommended to use SJR.
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Rankings impact-factor Journal Citation Reports by Thompson Reuters (database Web of Science) the impact factor of a journal is calculated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years; SJR (SCIMago Journal Rank) based on data from Elsevier (database Scopus); is calculated in a more dicult way (it takes into account the inuence of the journals that refer to this journal, proximity of the area of a journal etc.);
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Journal quartiles Journals are classied into quartiles; four levels - quartiles (quarters), ranging from Q1 (the highest) to Q4 (the lowest); there are thematic categories (Web of Science about 250, Scopus about 350);
  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Rankings - ocial websites are calculated every year and are published on ocial websites: Journal Citation Reports (available at www.isiknowledge.com); SCImago JR (available at www.scimagojr.com);

  • Scientic Papers Dr. Natalia Konstantinova About me Introduction Why? Where? Impact factors and quartile rankings Review process Research Papers Typical structure Structure: More Details Questions? Review lifecycle Submit a paper; It gets assigned 3-4 reviewers; Review process (conference: about 2 weeks - 1 month, journal: 2-3 months); Get decision (binary for conferences, n-ary for a journal): Decline/reject; Revise and resubmit (cannot be accepted in the current form and needs revision); Major (can be accepted but needs major changes); Minor (can be accepted but needs minor adjustments); Accept as it is; Address comments of the reviewers and send paper again;
