Approval Procedures

Published 2019-02-15

New scholarly and scientific journals for evaluation and inclusion in ERIH PLUS can be submitted continuously. Books, monographic series and conference proceedings are currently not included in ERIH PLUS.

A submission is done using the online submission form. A user account must be created (first time). The submission of a new journal must contain the following minimum information to be processed:

As ERIH PLUS encourages transparency, all information necessary to check the fulfilment of ERIH PLUS criteria, must be publicly available on the journal’s website. If the information on the website is not sufficient, the proposer will receive a notice from the ERIH PLUS team regarding which criteria are not sufficiently documented. The submission will not be evaluated until further information has been provided and is publicly available on the website.

All submissions are guaranteed a response regardless of the outcome of the evaluation process. The waiting time for new submissions to be processed is currently about 7 months. All registered users can track their own submissions and follow the outcome of the process.

‘Special cases’ where information on the journal or the national context is unclear may require special attention, which may extend the processing time. In such cases we will search for additional information about the journal through diverse sources, e.g. by contacting ERIH PLUS National Experts or other research indexes.

ERIH PLUS operates under a disclaimer which permits us to delist journals from ERIH PLUS without warning.
