Abstract

An analysis of journal rankings based on five commonly used bibliometric indicators (impact factor, article influence score, Source Normalized Impact per Paper, SCImago Journal Rank, and the Hirsch index) has been conducted. It is shown that despite a high correlation, these single indicator-based rankings are not identical. Therefore, a new approach to ranking academic journals is proposed based on the aggregation of single bibliometric indicators using threshold aggregation. The main property of this procedure is its non-compensability, which reduces opportunities for manipulation.

Keywords: bibliometrics, journal rankings, threshold aggregation.

JEL Classification: C71, D71.
