Elsevier > Engineering Village关于Telkomnika期刊的沟通发布

尊敬的研究者,

关于《Telkomnika:印度尼西亚电子工程期刊(ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X)》

感谢您发来的有关“TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X)”的邮件,也感谢您在我们调查造成此事原因时所表现出的耐心。

请您放心,我们已经完全了解到论文作者的担心并感同身受,这些作者通过《TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X)》发表的论文曾被收入Compendex索引,后来又从被此数据库中删除。而造成该事件的有关背景非常复杂、不幸且特殊,但我们保证该事件的发生绝非任何故意或恶意而为;虽然任何类型的错误都有可能发生,但我们始终保持高度重视错误的态度,并努力采取适当措施以尽快解决问题。

为支持中国作者使用Compendex,并表现我们的良好诚信,爱思唯尔决定恢复受影响的20122013年记录。截止到20143月底,Compendex中的1,274条《TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X)》记录将得到恢复。此后,Compendex将不会继续收录该期刊的2014年或其后内容。只有20122013年记录可供使用。《 TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X)》将不被列入Compendex资源列表。

如有任何其他问题,请告知我们。

(更多背景信息)

共有两种印度尼西亚期刊,均来自同一家出版社,使用同样的主标题,但具有不同的ISSN和子标题。

其一是《TELKOMNIKA:电信、计算、电子与控制(ISSN: 1693-6930)》(TELKOMNIKA: Telecommunication, Computing, Electronics and Control (ISSN: 1693-6930))。CompendexScopus2011年起审查、选取并收录该期刊。我们姑且称其为期刊A期刊A是我们计划收录的唯一Telkomnika期刊

另一份期刊是《TELKOMNIKA:印度尼西亚电子工程期刊(ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X)》(TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X))。ScopusCompendex均从未对该期刊进行过评估或选择收录。我们将其称为期刊B

2012年续订季,期刊A在爱思唯尔资源管理系统中的ISSN被无意间变更为期刊BISSN。爱思唯尔一开始没有发现这个错误,继续在20122013年的CompendexCompendex资源列表中收录错误的Telkomnika期刊内容。

2013年底,爱思唯尔运营团队发现了这个错误,并开始大量删除Scopus Compendex收录的期刊B的内容。此后,我们开始收到中国作者的质询,询问他们的记录为何被删除。由于这一事件涉及大量记录,我们花费了大量时间才得以还原事实真相。

关于Scopus出现的情况?

不过,一旦查明真相,Scopus就立即采取措施删除了期刊B的所有记录。接下来,该期刊被提交Scopus文章评估平台及工程 科目主席进行快速评审。评审结束后,爱斯唯尔最终决定不在Scopus中收录期刊B。我们已将这一决定告知出版商,并告知期刊B可于201577日之后再次申请。

关于Compendex出现的情况?

Compendex的情况则复杂得多。中国作者因为该期刊被收录于Compendex资源列表而向该期刊投稿(按照“作者付费”模式发表)。因此,删除记录将会在中国作者社区内引起强烈反响。

Communications for China researchers: Telkomnika

Dear Researcher,

Re: Telkomnika: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X).

Thank you for your email regarding TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X), and for your patience as we investigated the root cause of the issue.

Please be assured that we acknowledge the concerns of authors whose TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X) papers were indexed in Compendex, and then later removed from the database. While the circumstances surrounding this situation are complex, unfortunate, and unusual, they occurred fully without intent or malice; errors of any type can occur. We always take errors seriously and endeavor to resolve them appropriately, in due course.

In support of Chinese authors’ in their use of Compendex, and as a good-faith gesture, Elsevier has decided to restore the records for the affected years of 2012 and 2013. Before the end of March 2014, 1,274 records from TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X), will be restored in Compendex. Moving forward, Compendex will not cover this journal in 2014, or at any point thereafter.  Only the records for the years 2012 and 2013 will continue to be available. TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X) will not be listed on the Compendex Source List.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Sales Director, Elsevier S&T Greater China

 

MORE BACKGROUND

There are two Indonesian journals, both from the same publisher and with the same main title but with different ISSNs and subtitles.

One is TELKOMNIKA: Telecommunication, Computing, Electronics and Control (ISSN: 1693-6930). This title was reviewed and selected for coverage in both Compendex and Scopus starting in 2011 and onward. Let’s call this Journal A. This is the only Telkomnika journal we intended to cover.

The second is TELKOMNIKA: Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering (ISSN: 2302-4046, e-ISSN: 2087-278X). This title was never evaluated nor selected for coverage by either Scopus or Compendex.  We’ll call this Journal B.

During the 2012 renewal season, the ISSNs for Journal A in Elsevier’s Source Management System were inadvertently changed to the ISSNs for JOURNAL B. The error initially went unnoticed and Elsevier proceeded to capture data for the wrong Telkomnika journal both in Compendex and in the Compendex Source List for 2012 and 2013.

Late in 2013, Elsevier’s Operations team uncovered the error and initiated a mass deletion of Journal B records from Scopus and Compendex. Thereafter we began to see inquiries from Chinese authors trying to find out why their records had been deleted. Given the number of records involved, it took us considerable time to unravel the story about what had happened.

What’s happening for Scopus?

Once the situation was understood, however, Scopus took swift action to remove all the records for Journal B. The title was then submitted for a fast-track review in the Scopus title evaluation platform and by the engineering Subject Chair. Upon review completion, Journal B was ultimately rejected for inclusion in Scopus. The publisher has been notified of the decision and informed that Journal B can reapply after 7 July 2015.

What’s happening for Compendex?

For Compendex, it is much more complicated. Authors in China submitted papers to this journal (published as an “author pays” model) because the journal was listed on the Compendex Source List.  The removal of the records understandably caused a high degree of concern among the Chinese author community.
