Welcome to MIAR (Information Matrix for the Analysis of Journals) 2014. In this edition we have added important new features that we hope will help to increase the awareness on the visibility of the journals.
- MIAR is now GLOBAL. Enter in the search box any ISSN and the system will check if the journal is indexed by the databases covered in the matrix, whether or not the journal is included in MIAR, and will return the ICDS (without adding the value of the Survival Index if it is not included in MIAR).
- MIAR is a COLLABORATIVE tool. Publishers, authors and readers can suggest new journals, report mistakes, supply news, or share data on social networks. Publishers also can include value-added information about their journals if it can be validated against a public source on the Internet.
- MIAR has an INTEGRATIVE approach. Beyond reporting visibility among abstracting and indexing databases, MIAR provides information about other evaluation tools like the Sello de Calidad FECYT, Scimago Journal Rank, CARHUS+ or CIRC, as well as the journals’ open access policy linked to the ROMEO colour.
- MIAR is a TRANSPARENT and UPDATED information source. Data is always processed from public sources and we report the links to them. Our software agents check the sources fortnightly to keep MIAR updated with the latest changes or additions. The algorithm for ICDS is public and is displayed for each journal record.
