Assessing Journal Quality in Mathematics Education
Nivens, Ryan Andrew; Otten, Samuel
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v48 n4 p328-368 Jul 2017
In this Research Commentary, we describe 3 journal metrics--the Web of Science's Impact Factor, Scopus's SCImago Journal Rank, and Google Scholar Metrics' h5-index--and compile the rankings (if they exist) for 69 mathematics education journals. We then discuss 2 paths that the mathematics education community should consider with regard to these citation-based metrics of journal quality: either working within the system to enhance our positioning or resisting or modifying the system itself.
