Welcome to JournalBase,
A bilingual platform for searching journals in the Social Sciences and the Humanities and comparing their listings

Developed from the data on the Web of Science (Thomson Reuters), Scopus (Elsevier), the authoritative lists of ERIH (Europe) and HCERES (France), the remote access facility version of JournalBase offers a new service in the Social Sciences and the Humanities (SHS), with an inventory of the journals, and a comparison of their listings in national and international databases.

JournalBase provides all the indispensable information about the journal: the field of discipline, the journal’s website, the language of publication, the publisher, the country of the publisher, the journal’s status (Open Access or payable), as well as a comparative table of its listing in the WOS, Scopus,ERIH and HCERES for the years 2016 to 2021.

This pioneering tool offered in Open Acces should enable all parties involved in research in the Humanities and the Social Sciences (SHS) to have at their disposal a complete source of information and comparison on the subject.

The JournalBase project, launched in the beginning of 2008 under the direction of Michèle Dassa and Christine Kosmopoulos, is produced by the INSHS and the UMR-Géographie-cités of the CNRS with the support of the TGE-Adonis.
