Today REDIB ( Iberoamerican Network for Innovation and Scientific Knowledge) published its ranking. On the w@terfront appears in the place 155 (on 2,345 journals) and is in place 3 on the category of Architectural journals.
The REDIB is a platform for aggregating scientific and academic content in electronic formats produced in the Ibero-American space. The REDIB has a clear purpose: promoting technological innovation in publishing-output tools, or related to it in a broader and geographically non-restrictive cultural and social sense. These provide access to, and facilitate the dissemination and implementation of scientific work done in the countries where it operates, particularly in the various languages belonging to them. The recipients of this information are both the academic community and society at large, as well as those responsible for scientific policy, and those who put it into practice and analyse it. The Internet ensures this information has global reach.
The REDIB uses a single portal to give users direct access to scientific and academic documents of confirmed quality, put out by publishers and other producers of scientific and academic content in Ibero-American countries or relating to Ibero-American issues, either geographically or culturally.
As managers, first evaluators and disseminators of scientific work, scientific publishers represent the key element of and participant in the platform. As a consequence of playing this leading role, the REDIB provides users with direct and transparent access to the content put out by the publisher on its original site, respecting and highlighting its identity. At the same time, the REDIB aims to promote modernisation and the implementation of new publishing technologies, providing information, support and a meeting place for publishers to exchange experiences and knowledge directly.
The REDIB wants to stand out for a philosophy of cooperative work: access to content in the place it was originally produced, publishers working together voluntarily, and transparency in the process of communication between information users and producers. It also aims to foster technological innovation to manage and locate scientific information, and to generate ties between publishers and other producers of academic content, authors and users.
The REDIB’s objectives are:
• To strengthen and professionalise online scientific publishing, encouraging and supporting publishers in adopting the most appropriate and innovative publishing tools for putting out content in standardised and interoperable formats, thereby achieving greater fluency in information incorporation and processing.
• To establish prior editorial quality filters for participating publishers, as a way of recognising best practice and of protecting users from the proliferation of pseudoscientific content on the Internet.
• To consolidate a system of bibliographic information that enables the generation of publishing and scientific quality indicators.
• To contribute to implementing new criteria for technical quality of publishing, such as, amongst others: use of specific programs for publishing and putting out scientific content enabling information interoperability; use of identifiers that ensure continuous access to content; standardisation of authorship; and use of new electronic publishing formats.
