Evaluation of conferences in Publication Forum

Publication Forum (Julkaisufoorumi, JUFO)

Publication Forum system is based on quality classification of scientific publication channels. Rating takes place in field specific expert panels. Evaluations based on bibliometric methods can be complemented with JuFo which is suitable for evaluation of publications of research institutes, disciplines or countries but not for evaluation of individual researchers. JuFo -levels of publications are used as one criteria in the funding model  for universities by the Ministry of  Culture and Education.
