Panels

Last updated 31.5.2022

The most important task assigned to the Panels is the evaluation and classification of academic publication channels in the fields covered by each individual Panel. The practical evaluation work takes place through a web portal designed for the Panellists’ use. The Panels only convene when necessary and mainly for the introduction of their work and during the review of ratings. When needed, joint meetings of the Panel chairs are also organised.

The Steering Group of the Publication Forum is in charge of appointing the Panels and supervising the evaluation work. The Panellists are chosen from amongst academics with experience in research work, scholarly publishing and research evaluation. In appointing the Panellists, the Steering Group's main concern is to ensure that the expertise of the Panels covers the research fields they are responsible for. Attention is also paid to fair gender representation and representation of various organisations in the Panels. The Panellists are representatives of the national science community in their respective field of study, and they are also expected to consult their background communities.

The current Panels will be responsible for the publication channel evaluations during the term from 2022 to 2025.
