Members of the scientific community can participate in the Publication Forum classification by proposing amendments. Follow the instructions below to propose a new publication channel for classification or to suggest higher or lower level for a publication channel. It is also possible to propose a correction to the bibliographic information of a publication channel (e.g. name, ISSN-number). Proposals can be made in the JUFO portal after logging in. Note. Login to the JUFO portal takes place via Eduuni.

    Proposals for level amendments

    • Log in to the JUFO portal and search for the publication channel whose level category you want to suggest a change to. 
    • Click on the name of the publication channel in the search results listing to view the publication channel's information. There is a "Suggest new level" button at the top that opens the proposal form. Proposed level rating and justifications must be filled in the form.
    • Please note that proposals concerning levels 2 and 3 are generally processed in connection with the re-evaluation of levels 2 and 3, which is carried out every four years.
