17 591 journals appear on the list recently announced by the Minister of Science and Higher Education. The number of points for publishing an article in a given journal is also defined there. Journals are divided into three groups as before:
Group A includes 11 272 journals which have a defined Impact Factor (IF) and are listed in the Journal Citation Reports. The maximum number of points ascribed to a journal is 50 points.
Group B includes 2 209 titles which do not have a defined IF coefficient and a paper published in one of these journals can obtain up to 15 points.
Group C includes 4 111 journals concerned with the human sciences.
Papers published in “Operations Research and Decisions”, included on the list B are always awarded 12 points.
484 journals from group B have more points than ORD and 189 have the same score.
