Publication Forum is a classification of publication channels created by the Finnish scientific community to support the quality assessment of academic research.
Publication data from Finnish higher education institutions, university hospitals and research institutes show that the number of publications in MDPI journals has started to decrease in 2022.
In 2022, the Publication Forum expert panels carried out a re-evaluation of JUFO levels 2 and 3. This report describes the implementation and main features of the 2023 classification.
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.
