Journals approved by the Planning and Budgeting Committee
The Council for Higher Education's new budget model, which was determined by the Planning and Budgeting Committee, includes a teaching component and a research component. The research component is designed to reflect the university's publication output through objective measures, and includes a publication measure (number of the University faculty scientific publications) and an impact measure of these publications' quality (by the impact factor measure of journals in which these publications appear). University budgets are, therefore, influenced by researchers' choice of academic journal for publication.
For the purpose of institutional budgeting, the Planning and Budgeting Committee approves the academic journals included in the following databases:
* Databases numbered 1-4 are the Web of Science Core Collection sources, therefore, any journal included in them is considered Planning and Budgeting Committee approved.
Ulrichweb can be used to locate the databases in which journals catalogued and indexed. See our hebrew manual for using Ulrichweb (pdf).
