The following lists will be available as a filter in Dimensions. Each list of journals is recognised as an independent grouping outside of Dimensions.

Norwegian register

The Norwegian register, officially the ‘Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers’ is operated jointly by the Norwegian Centre for Research Data (NSD) and the National Board of Scholarly Publishing (NPU). The list shows which scientific publications are recognized in the weighted funding model and includes around 30k source titles. The Norwegian register divides journals and series considered to meet scientific quality criteria into Level 1 and Level 2, where Level 2 is superior than Level 1. These scientific quality criteria include a valid ISSN, a scientific editorial board, and a peer-review process. Source titles which do not meet these criteria are identified as Level 0.
