Core Journals: A Reappraisal of the Diamond List
One component of research assessment has been, and will continue to be, the explicit (or implicit) ranking of journals. Despite the obvious limitations, citations data are generally used to generate rankings as they provide one of the few quantifiable aspects of a journal's performance. Previous ranking schemes based on multiple performance measures constructed from citations data, such as the 'Diamond core,' can be criticized for their use of arbitrary weighting schemes to generate their final rankings. This paper addresses this problem by applying ranking techniques, namely, data envelopment analysis and integer programming, which systematically allow for multiple performance measures.
