摘要: 2013 年7 月至8 月,作者开展了首次“中国地理信息科学(GISci) 领域科研人员心目中的本领域国际学术期刊等级”问卷调查,对回收的37 份问卷进行分析后得出了中国(含港澳台地区) GISci 领域科研人员心目中的本领域55 种国际学术期刊排名情况。比较了本次调查结果与国际上此前公布的唯一一次、但无中国学者参与的GISci 领域国际学术期刊等级问卷调查结果间的异同。与SCI/SSCI 期刊影响因子相比照,发现目前SCI/SSCI 检索期刊总体上能较好地覆盖GISci 领域的国际学术期刊,但SCI/SSCI 期刊影响因子尚不能较好体现中国学者心目中本领域期刊的等级。本次问卷调查结果的公布能够促进GISci 领域的中国青年科研人员及研究生对本领域学术期刊的了解,避免目前常常仅以影响因子来评价本领域国际学术期刊所产生的偏颇。

Abstract: In this paper, we make a report on the design and conduct of a questionnaire survey (during July and August, 2013) for the first time on GIScience international journal ranking by researchers in China (including Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan regions). A total of 37 questionnaires were analyzed, thus a ranking list of 55 GIScience international journals was produced. We compared this ranking list with the result from an international questionnaire survey on GIScience journal ranking, which is for the only time to our knowledge and without Chinese researchers involved. The main difference is reported. We also analyzed the ranking list from this survey based on the widely-used impact factor of journals. The results show that in general the current SCI/SSCI journal list released by the Institute of Science Index can cover the GIScience international journals well. However, the impact factor of SCI/SSCI journal cannot appropriately reflect the ranking of GIScience international journals. We believe that the release of the result from this survey can help the young researchers and graduate students of GIScience domain in China to know GIScience international journals from different aspects. In such a way the shortcomings due to the abuse of impact factor might be relieved.
