A New Journal Ranking System Based on Transparency

[Excerpts taken from the article, “Journal transparency index will be ‘alternative’ to impact scores” by Jack Groves, published at timeshighereducation.com]
“A new ranking system for academic journals measuring their commitment to research transparency will be launched next month – providing what many believe will be a useful alternative to journal impact scores.”
“Under a new initiative from the Center for Open Science, based in Charlottesville, Virginia, more than 300 scholarly titles in psychology, education and biomedical science will be assessed on 10 measures related to transparency, with their overall result for each category published in a publicly available league table.”
“The centre aims to provide scores for about 1,000 journals within six to eight months of their site’s launch in early February.”
