Experts question rankings of journals

Experts question rankings of journals
Peer review may be a good way to assess research papers, but it can fall short in ranking the journals themselves. That's the reaction of some metrics experts to the first such journal rankings, launched this week by the Faculty of 1000 (F1000) in London. Critics question the method, which relies on scores awarded to individual papers by the F1000 'faculty' of 10,000 scientists and clinicians. Such scores, they claim, could be skewed by the interests and enthusiasms of individual reviewers.
