ERIH Foreword : European Science Foundation

ERIH Foreword : European Science Foundation.

The European Reference Index in the Humanities “created by and developed by European Researchers both for their own purposes and in order to present their ongoing research achievements systematically to the rest of the world” has created a highly controversial list of research journals in the humanities.  So controversial has this list become that in 2011, the list (first published in 2008) has now changed its grading system from A-B-C to categorizing by influence and scope (i.e. NAT=national or INT= International).  See the summary article in the Chronicle by Rachel Wiseman.
