Free articles on (journal) rankings

SpringerNature has implemented a SharedIt initiative, which allows authors to share their published articles swiftly and legally with colleagues and the wider community. Anyone will be able to connect to a view-only version of the articles for free. If you would like to save or print the article, please refer to the pre-publication version or just drop me an email for an official reprint.

In addition, several of my articles in the area of journal rankings and research evaluation are available in gold open access for other reasons and are hence included in the list.
