|Other Titles:||An Evaluation of Educational Journals of Taiwan in 2008|
Department od Education, NTNU
The two former evaluations on educational journals and the founding list of the TSSCI, both sponsored by the National Science Council, had a great impact on the educational fields of study in Taiwan. The third round of evaluation was undergone in 2008 because the last assessment was conducted five years ago, and a number of new educational journals were published. The evaluation used both subjective and objective indicators. The subjective indicator was derived from the assessment outcomes of the quality of journals by the survey through a circle of educational scholars. The objective indicator was underpinned by the counts of mutual citations according to the literature cited in the references of journal papers. Each journal was assessed according to the total scores from both subjective and objective indicators. Cluster analyses were employed to rank these journals into the indicators as four categories. Finally, the results of reliability and validity tests showed good quality of evaluation. Furthermore, the author explored the factors influencing the quality of journals, and then offered suggestions for improving the quality of educational journals. The methods used in this evaluation can also serve an important reference for assessing academic journals in other fields.
