The Publication Forum project implemented a classification system for scientific journals, publication series and book publishers in Finland, following the Norwegian and Danish examples.
The Publication Forum project took place between 1 August 2010 and 29 February 2012. The objective was to create a research assessment tool which would be used to complement the university funding model with a publication quality indicator and to evaluate the publication activity of research organisations or disciplines at the level of large publication quantities. The following report summarizes the implementation of the project as well as completing the first Publication Forum classification.
