EDUCATION IN CIVIL ENGINEERING THROUGH JOURNALS PUBLICATIONS: THE RELATION BETWEEN THE PUBLICATION TIME AND ITS REGIONAL RANKINGS
Keywords:Article, Average Duration, Education, Impact Factor, Ministry of Science and Higher Education, Research, Points, Source Normalized Impact Per Paper
The fast and quality dissemination of research breakthroughs via journals is essential to the researchers. Hence, this study analyzed the average duration for Civil Engineering journals based on the points allocations in Poland’s Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MEiN) list. A total of 30 journals were randomly selected and grouped based on the regional points allocation. The date of submission to the date of acceptance (SA) and the date of acceptance to the date of publication (SP) were extracted from 3557 articles. Version 26 IBM Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyze the average duration for the dataset. Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) was used for the analysis of the relationship between the points allocation and the Scopus impact factors (IF), Web of Science impact factors (WoS IF), source normalized impact per paper (SNIP), SA, and SP. The results show that the average duration SA and SP for journals with 200, 140, and 100 points within the 5 years are 305.28, 285.25, 317.93 days, respectively, while for journals with 70, 40, and 20 points, the average duration is 180.50, 324.60, 206.41 days. Further analysis shows a statistically significant difference between the Scopus IF, WoS IF, SNIP, and allocated points. They indicate that these journal metrics affect journal categorization.
