As of January 1st, 2018, the 2017 data from MIAR has been added to MIAR´s archive. The default version for performing searches is now the MIAR 2018 Live version, updated continuously throughout the year. From this version it is possible to access the calculation of ICDS for previous years from the full record of each journal.
MIAR 2018 introduces a change regarding journal coverage: it now only shows journals that appear in at least one bibliographic database or evaluation directory. This has resulted in the removal from MIAR of journals with an ICDS score of 0.0.; i.e., journals not present in any bibliographic database or directory.
For this reason, the submission process for suggesting new journals in MIAR now rejects titles without a presence in any database or repertory.
However, as it has done for years, MIAR allows ISSN searching and indicates if a journal is present in any of the 110 resources reviewed, regardless of whether it is in the MIAR database.
