Faculty Journal List

The Faculty board approved the new Faculty Journal List (FJL) in 2015 at the recommendation of an ad-hoc Scientific Advisory Committee (in which all Departments were represented).

The purpose of the FJL is to define a graded set of "top" journals for the core fields at our Faculty. The FJL contains a total 476 journals, of which 176 journals are in Category 1, and 300 are in Category 2.

The FJL is used as a general reference for various measures and policies taken by the Faculty board. In particular, it is used to structure the representation of research output in the annual report of the Faculty and on our webpages. It is also used in determining the payouts for our publications premia programme. Find more information about the FJL on our factsheet.
