Editorial: Volume 30 Issue 3

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In this editorial we’d like to take the opportunity provided by the release of the 2014 Google Scholar Journal Metrics to explain the various journal metrics, how they are calculated and how AJET rates against other Educational Technology journals. Journal metrics broadly refer to the various measures of quality or impact of a journal, largely based on the number of articles published in the journal itself and citations in other journals to articles published in the journal. As well as being used to rank the journals themselves, metrics are often used as a proxy measure of the quality of articles in a particular journal, and thus individual researchers’ publication lists. For example, it is common for researchers to refer to the impact factor of the journals in which they have published as part of grant applications.
