Home About Disclaimer

Often a journal is considered "important" when papers from that journals are often cited. The number of citations can be counted, and this may give an "impact factor" of such a journal. Some funding organisations subsidise research on basis of the number of published papers in journals with high impact factors. ISI-Web of Knowledge maintains such a list of impact factors. A selection of relevant journals in the coastal engineering is provided below (data from 2014):

OA = full open access journal, Sub =  Subscription only, Mix =  Both OA and Sub, Del = Delay option, papers become OA after some time. For Springer journals in Mixed Mode TU Delft has not to pay Processing Fee, for Springer OA TU Delft get 15% discount.

For Mixed Mode journals where TU Delft has a subscription (for example Elsevier) TU Delft policy is NOT to publish as Open Access.

WBK pubs is the number of papers published in this journal by WBK staff in the years 2010-2014. These numbers are largely based on the Repository, and may not be complete. For an overview of papers in this counting, see spreadsheet

Practically it means that our department does not publish papers as Open Access in mixed-mode journals when the name of the publisher is red (or pink) and that we do publish as Open Access when the name of the publisher is green. Light green means that the journal is Open Access and the publlication fee is paid by the department. Dark green means that the publication fee comes from central funds of TU Library. The department has not made decisions regarding the publishers mentioned in black.

For other journals see the overview list provided by ISI and the search module of ISE.
