This post shows there is no correlation between journal prices and the Scientific Journal Rankings (SJR). The SJR works like a page rank algorithm and weights were citations of journal articles come from e.g. high cited paper/journals cites another paper/journal the ranking is weighted more. Unlike the Thomson Reutuer’s Impact Score this uses the Scorpus database and covers over 40 of the journals in this study. As before I compared the rankings of journals (list and scores here) against their price and price per page of English language journals:
Basically, the R2 between both commercial publishers’ and non-commercial publishers’ journals is so weak that is in effect no correlation between price and supposed quality of a archaeology journal.
