The CSIC's ranking of publishers of scientific publications in the Humanities and Social Sciences

The CSIC/Spanish Council for Scientific Research's (Centro de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales) has drawn up a ranking of publishers of scientific publications, the SPI (Scholarly Publishers Indicators), based on the opinions of Spanish experts in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The objective of the classification is to obtain quality indicators for publications and publishers of a scientific nature in the Humanities and Social Sciences for reference purposes in review and evaluation processes. The SPI is the result of the research project, "Categorisation of scientific publications in the Humanities and Social Sciences", funded by the CSIC.

The authors form part of the EPUC Research Group on Scientific Publications, which has a track record of more than seventeen years in evaluating Spanish scientific journals. There is one general ranking, together with another that is broken down according to disciplines. The first shows the publishers that are most highly assessed, with one listing for Spanish publishers and another for foreign publishers. The second gives sixteen categories that cover all of the various disciplines.
