ERA journal ratings for mathematics

Math journal rating table: • ExcelOpenDocument SpreadsheetCSVPDF

As part of their Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) program, the Australian Research Council rated more than 20,000 peer-reviewed journals. The ratings were released in February 2010. Each journal was assigned one to three fields of research and one of four tiers:

A* - one of the best in its field or subfield
A - very high quality
B - solid, though not outstanding
C - does not meet the criteria of the higher tiers

The rating table supplied above (in several formats) contains the ERA journal rankings for the 1,186 journals with at least one assigned field of research in the Mathematical Sciences, the division which covers mathematics, statistics, and mathematical aspects of the physical sciences, and which contains six subgroups: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Numerical and Computational Mathematics, Statistics, Mathematical Physics, and Other Mathematical Sciences.

Much more information is available from the Australian Research Council, including the complete Ranked Journal List of more than 20,000 publications.

Note: the math journals rating table posted on this page was excerpted from the ERA 2010 Ranked Journal List and posted by me, Douglas Arnold, with permission. I was not involved in the production of the rankings in any other way.
