RESEARCH NOTE
Implementing a More Objective Index to Measure the Relevance and Impact of Scientific Journals

Pascual Izquierdo-Egea


Arqueol. Iberoam.


Abstract
This brief communication presents an index capable of measuring the relevance of scientific journals in terms of a completely objective way, based on their production and early age, thus avoiding the use of parameters as susceptible to being manipulated as the citations that are so abused today. In spite of this, to convince the skeptics, another index is introduced, including citations in addition to the referred parameters.

Keywords
Index; relevance; impact; scientific journals; bibliometrics.
