Julkaisufoorumi - Finnish Publication Forum JuFo

Publication Forum (in Finnish: Julkaisufoorumi) is a national system for assessing publications. It maintains and develops the classification of scientific publication channels.

The base of the Publication Forum system is a qualitative classification of scientific publication channels in all scientific fields. The evaluation of publication channels takes place in 23 field specific expert panels. The levels are: 1 = basic, 2 = leading, 3 = top. Publication channels that do not meet the criteria for at least the basic level, receive a level 0.
