New Web Resources

Between blogs and listservs and general question answering, I come across many helpful web resources. Here are a few you might want to check out:

academic-journalsSC Imago Journal and Country Rank 

This online database ranks academic journals in most disciplines – so if you are seeking the most significant journals in your discipline to publish within, this gives a means to determine a list. Most searches require the selection of a subject area followed by a subject category. For instance, both religion and philosophy are located under the subject area “Arts and Humanities” and library science is located in the subject area of “Social Sciences.”

This database is a portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus database (Elsevier). The indicators are used to assess and address scientific domains. SCImago is a research group from the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), University of Granada, Extremadura, Carlos III (Madrid) and Alcalá de Henares.

Quotenik

I am often fascinated by quotes and have worked on both a published volume of quotations (at the Library of Congress) and unpublished ones when I worked for Prison Fellowship Ministries. The tricky part is getting the quote right! Many times I’ll see a quotation with no reference as to where it was located, and even the author’s name is not always correct. I mean, how many times have you seen attributions to Mark Twain or Augustine that were difficult to track back?

I read about Quotenik via the Chicago Manual of Style blog. The author is Sara Bader and she describes herself as a writer, archival researcher and editor. Unlike many sites of quotations, Sara’s aim is to verify the accuracy of the quote and to add new and interesting ones as well.

And a fun link to wrap things up…from the Liturgy blog by Rev. Bosco Peters,
“Prayers for Myers-Briggs Types”
