@KylieTastic: btw you can tag their talk pages so they appear in the Article Alerts for this project too. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 06:51, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
@Headbomb: Yes but I think it shows only currently submitted ones, so if declined it does not appear - would be nice if it showed recently declined as well so the project could see to improve or advise author. KylieTastic (talk) 12:56, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Medical Hypothesis, Discovery & Innovation in Ophthalmology [ edit ]

This debate could use some expert input. Thanks! --Randykitty (talk) 08:29, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

Communications Physics [ edit ]

If anyone is interested, the scientific journal Communications Physics qualifies for inclusion. Scroll down on the linked page to abstracting and indexing (Current Contents and Science Citation Index). It is an open access journal published by Springer Nature (Springer and Nature used to be separate - ah the good ol' days!). I am unable to locate an impact factor on the site. And here is the home page - very impressive.

Communications Physics is a redirect at this time, but it seems to me this journal merits its own article.

Thanks to the section this redirects to - I checked out Communications Biology, and that also seems to qualify per abstracting and indexing. See the "About" page.

I suspect Communications Chemistry and Communications Materials might also qualify. Well, here are four possible scientific journal articles for an ambitious editor. Have fun! ---Steve Quinn (talk) 04:00, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

Transactions of the Krylov State Research Center [ edit ]

Does the journal is notable as per WP:NJOURNAL. Did not find anything at . Any help is appreciated. ~ Amkgp 💬 09:22, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

@Headbomb and Randykitty: ~ Amkgp💬 09:24, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
Also tried with the ISSN but nothing showed up at or ~ Amkgp 💬 09:28, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
I don't see notability there. The tricky bit is that this is a Soviet/Russian journal, and coverage is probably much more substantial in Soviet/Russian sources which may not be digitized, and which I couldn't read anyway if I managed to find them. A merge to Krylov State Research Center is what I'd recommend, unless more sources are found. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 15:03, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
I agree with Headbomb. Merge to Krylov State Research Center. ---Steve Quinn (talk) 18:53, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
@Headbomb, Randykitty, DGG, and Amkgp::
I'm looking at the MIAR tool that is linked above by User:Amkgp. This is certainly useful for WP Academic Journals. I think we should somehow integrate this into this project. I'm thinking integrate into the Writing Guide and maybe integrate this as a search tool to help with determining notability per WP Journals' notability guidelines. Thoughts? ---Steve Quinn (talk) 19:12, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
Well we already mention it in WP:JWG#Abstracting and indexing information, it's mentioned in WP:JRES, and it's also integrated in {{infobox journal}} (this both needs an ISSN to work, and to have search links enabled). Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 19:31, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
@Headbomb, Randykitty, and Steve Quinn: Also, the journal's homepage says that it is indexed at Russian Science Citation Index and Web of Science but the claims remains un-verified both from website and at article where there is no reference in support. I tried at but did not find anything ~ Amkgp 💬 19:46, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
You might have to search the Russian title. Both the transliterated version or the original Cyrillic version. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 19:50, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
Headbomb, I could find only from Russian State Library ~ Amkgp 💬 20:07, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
Headbomb, OK thanks. This is a little bit of an oversight on my part. Steve Quinn (talk) 19:50, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Requesting Citation or Further Discussion To this Speculation [ edit ]

Hi there, I enjoy this project while I was reading about it and I found this passage where to me should be cited at least or I will open the debate around the actual value of the scientific book as follow: (If scientific impact is considered related to the number of endorsements, in the form of citations, a journal receives, then prestige can be understood as a combination of the number of endorsements and the prestige or importance of the journals issuing them.) As the Science is in constant evolution and just to mention this point, endorsements and citation, can be manipulated or modified and the related number attach to it would end up irrecevable or compromised. Based on a journal, unless there is a proof of concept and some applicative solutions, it would be improper to use this argumentation and honorable mention from this book. Best Regards SirlupinwatsonIII (talk) 01:36, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

@SirlupinwatsonIII: what article are you referring to? Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 03:12, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
No, citation counts are never a measure of significance or reliability. See also . Nemo 06:52, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

New pages patrol [ edit ]

Please weigh in: Wikipedia_talk:New_pages_patrol/Reviewers#Journal_articles. Thanks. fgnievinski (talk) 16:55, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Technology, Education, Management, Informatics [ edit ]

Is this a predatory journal? (ISSN 2217-8309; ISSN 2217-8333) It looks a little fishy, but is indexed at least in a few places. AleatoryPonderings (talk) 23:10, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Any particular reasons why it would be? Looks like any other random European journals from a minor publisher. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 00:04, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
Headbomb, Mostly just the look and feel, and the fact that it was open access. Nothing else, really. Thanks for weighing in. AleatoryPonderings (talk) 04:20, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Articles to expand and clean up [ edit ]

Journal of Political Economy


New Political Economy (journal)

I've added templates wrt expanding for more references. Anyone with a political economy background can help expand and improve these articles? Thanks!

Journal of Healthcare Management up for deletion [ edit ]

This could use more eyes from the project. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 16:02, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

Widener Law Review [ edit ]

I thought all law reviews were notable. This has been tagged. Notable or not? Ping me, please. Bearian (talk) 01:50, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

What is this?
