Publication Forum is a classification of publication channels created by the Finnish scientific community to support the quality assessment of academic research.
The chairs of the Publication Forum panels have decided to downgrade Sustainability journal from level 1 to level 0 from the beginning of 2023.
The JUFO portal now provides more diverse information about open access to channels, their Plan S eligibility and FinELib agreements. At the same time, the front page has been made clearer.
The report examines the international context and organisation of the JUFO classification, the characteristics of JUFO levels as a quality indicator of universities’ publishing performance, and the trends of scholarly publishing in Finland.
The Steering Group of the Publication Forum has updated the user guide for the Publication Forum classification. The user guide contains recommendations on the responsible use of the classification.
