Slovenian scientific journals in 2021

Based on (1) the lists of Slovenian scientific journals in international databases used to evaluate publications by Slovenian researchers, (2) regular government calls for support of scientific journals, and (3) a more detailed review of the main international bibliographic databases for this system (SNIP, JCR, SJR), we can conclude that 219 Slovenian journals with scientific articles were published in 2021. Every second journal was founded after 1990, and about 60% of them belong to social sciences and humanities. Their publishers are Slovenian institutions and the journals are diamond journals: only 7.7% of journals are affiliated with major global publishers and only 3.7% use APC (Article Processing Charge).


ZUM developed the COBISS/SciMet portal to monitor scientific publications and to evaluate publications published by Slovenian authors. The methodology of collecting, aggregating and processing data on Slovenian authors obtained from different information resources, e.g. WoS, Scopus, COBISS.SI, SICRIS, SNIP and JCR is described. The options of data display within the portal and the functionalities of the portal are presented. A new framework used for developing the COBISS/SciMet web application is presented.


Relating to the connection between information science and bibliography (and librarianship), the elements are given to compare the concepts of Répertoire Bibliographique Universel (RBU) and COBIB within the COBISS system. Different aspects of understanding the development of bibliographies and the author’s personal view of the development of bibliographies are presented. According to Paul Otlet’s idea, conceived at the end of the 19th century, RBU was to represent the universal bibliography of all books and other publications from all countries, from all times and from all subject areas, organised by subject and author. Catalogues should represent the first stage of RBU.
