Social Science Journals that Have a Research Data Policy | JoRD (UK)
The project called JoRD (UK) funded by JISC provides a very useful website where social science journals with a research data policy are listed.
“The aim of the JoRD Policy Bank project is to conduct a feasibility study into the scope and shape of a sustainable service that will collate and summarise journal data policies. The project will deliver requirements and specifications for a service that will provide researchers, managers of research data and other stakeholders with an easy source of reference to understand and comply with the research data policies of journals and publishers.”
These journals were taken from the 2011 Thomson Reuters’ Journal citation reports. They include the journals from the top 100 (most cited) and bottom 100 least cited) ranked by impact factor.
