ERA Journal Ranking - John Lamp

Great resource provided by John Lamp with ERA journal lists including the "ranked list" from ERA 2010.

Were you better of research in 'Design Practice and Management' or 'Forestry' in ERA 2010?

Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.

Here is an older news article about the impact of the journal ranking list from ERA:

Although it is an old article I wouldn't be surprised if the impact of the journal list is still being felt today.

This is an interesting article about the ERA 2010 journal list and looks at the two ends of the spectrum in terms of number of A* titles available to publish in.

Abstract
As part of its program of ‘Excellence in Research for Australia’ (ERA), the Australian Research Council ranked journals into four categories (A*, A, B, and C) in preparation for their performance evaluation of Australian universities. The ranking is important because it likely to have a major impact on publication choices and research dissemination in Australia. The ranking is problematic because it is evident that some disciplines have been treated very differently than others. This paper reveals weaknesses in the ERA journal ranking and highlights the poor correlation between ERA rankings and other acknowledged metrics of journal standing. It highlights the need for a reasonable representation of journals ranked as A* in each scientific discipline.
