2015 óta Finnországban is megjelenik a Publication Forum nevű minősítési és osztályozási rendszer, amely a kvantitatív kimutatások mellett támogatja a kutatási eredmények minőségi értékelését is. A rendszer a „norvég modellhez” hasonló, és a teljesítményalapú kutatási finanszírozás elemeként játszik szerepet az országban. A modell négy kategória között differenciál és helyezi el az egyes tudományos megjelenési felületeket. Kutatásunk célja rámutatni, hogy a finn rendszer hogyan és milyen mértékben orientálja kutatóit a tudományos kiválóság felé. Az elemzés módszertanát tudománymetriai adatokon alapuló leíró statisztika adja, amely elsősorban a folyóiratkiadók és országaik megoszlására fókuszál.

Eredményeink azt mutatják, hogy a topkategóriában dominálnak a nemzetközi szinten vezető hagyományos kiadók (elsősorban a Big Five: Elsevier, Springer Nature, Taylor and Francis, Wiley és Sage), illetve azt is láthatjuk, hogy a regionális lapok, valamint a megafolyóiratok ezzel szemben leértékeltek. Megfigyelhetjük a nyugat-európai – főleg a brit – folyóiratok felértékelődését is. A tanulmány érdekessége, hogy a finn értékelési rendszer szerint vizsgáljuk a hazai intézmények (16 egyetem) teljesítményét is.

Since 2015, Finland has also published the Publication Forum journal evaluation system, which supports qualitative evaluation of research outputs in addition to quantitative reporting. The system is similar to the “Norwegian model” and plays a role as an element of the performance-based research funding in the country. The model differentiates between 4 categories and ranks each of them according to their scientific output. The paper aims to highlight how and to what extent the Finnish system orients its researchers towards scientific excellence. The analysis is built on descriptive statistics based on scientometric data, that focuses mainly on the distribution of journal publishers and their countries.

Our results demonstrate that the top level is dominated by the internationally leading traditional publishers (mainly the Big Five: Elsevier, Springer Nature, Taylor and Francis, Wiley and Sage), while, in contrast, regional journals and mega-journals underperform. We can also observe an appreciation of Western European – mainly British – publications. An interesting feature of the study is that the performance of Hungarian institutions (16 universities) is also examined according to the Finnish evaluation system.
