Bibliography on criteria for assessing the quality of scientific publications

Herb, Ulrich

The data deposited here consist of references to literature that was evaluated during the development of  a qualitative survey and an online questionnaire on the qualitative perception of scientific publications.

In preparation for these qualitative interviews and the online survey, a literature study on the qualitative perceptions of scientific literature was conducted in January and February 2018.  The focus was on the question which internal characteristics, i.e. in the narrower sense content-related factors, influence the perception of a publication as qualitatively valuable or poor. External characteristics as citation counts should not be at the centre of the research - knowing that they control qualitative perception - since their effect on the perception of the quality of a publication is sufficiently discussed (see e.g. Dong, Loh, & Mondry, 2005).
The literature study was based on the results of a search in the databases Web of Science, Scopus, Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts and the search engine Google Scholar.

VisOA_full_results.bib includes references that were considered valuable in principle, VisOA.bib only those that have been considered in the development of the survey instruments.
