WikiProject Academic Journals  articles by quality     Refresh

Welcome to WikiProject Academic Journals, a collaboration area and group of editors dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of academic journals, conference proceedings, monographic series, and other scholarly serial publications. Specifically, this means expanding, categorizing, and cleaning up existing articles, as well as creating new ones.

If you plan to be active in editing articles relating to academic journals, please add your name and your interests to the Participant list below. Concrete proposals and suggestions to improve the WikiProject and articles are discussed on the talk page, and any and all interested parties are encouraged to join up and participate.

Scope & Goals

The project was originally started to cover academic journals, but the scope has naturally expanded to cover related areas not covered by other WikiProjects. We want to improve the quality of articles about academic journals and their related topics, encourage the use of {{cite journal}} and other {{cite}} templates, and create articles from the list of missing journals and list of highly cited [on Wikipedia] journals without articles).

Specifically, we cover academic journals and their publishers, academic societies and their bulletins [internal publications], academic conferences and their proceedings, academic awards prizes and medals, and series of monographs. We also cover (to a lesser extent) academic libraries, archives, and databases.


When using an academic journal as a source and/or if you are starting an article on a journal, you should do the following:

  • Check whether it is on the (discontinued) Beall's List of Predatory Journals - if it's on the list, don't use it, please!

Categories for discussion

New articles

Please feel free to list your new articles on journals or journals-related topics here (newer articles at the top, please). Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Main Page. Please remember to check new articles against Beall's Lists (both publishers and standalone journals, as they are non-overlapping).

Did you know...

These are the 10 most recent Did you know... articles and their blurbs for the project. The full list of all entries is available here and is automatically maintained by JL-Bot.
