Can’t find your scientific article on the high impact publications list on KI’s central website? From now on you have to inform the Communications and Public Relations Office yourself if you want to be sure of being on the list. Work is also going on to automate the list – and at the same time also make a few changes to the selection criteria.

The high impact publications list on KI’s website has been in existence for about a decade and currently lists scientific articles where researchers at the university are involved – original findings and review articles – that have recently been published in high impact journals with JIF 15 and above. Finding and listing the articles has from the outset been done manually by the staff of the Communications and Public Relations Office.

With the growing number of scientific journals and new priorities within the Communications and Public Relations Office, it is no longer possible to maintain the high level of service we have hitherto had with regard to the high impact publications list. A number of journals will continue to be monitored with a degree of regularity but in order to be sure of getting your top-ranked article onto the list you will need to contact the Communications and Public Relations Office yourself.

The Communications and Public Relations Office is collaborating with the university library to automate the high impact publications list and the project is expected to be completed by the beginning of next year. At the same time we will also be taking the opportunity to broaden the selection criteria a little following discussions with the Dean of Research. More information about this will be available later.
