ESF Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) ERIH revised lists now online
More information about the new classification here.


The European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) is the only reference index created and developed by European researchers both for their own purposes and in order to present their ongoing research achievements systematically to the rest of the world. It is also a unique project because, in the context of a world dominated by publication in English, it highlights the vast range of world-class research published by humanities researchers in the European languages. 



NATional (NAT) European publications with a recognised scholarly significance among researchers in the respective research domains in a particular (mostly linguistically circumscribed) readership group in Europe; occasionally cited outside the publishing country, though their main target group is the domestic academic community.


INTernational (INT): both European and non-European publications with an internationally recognised scholarly significance among researchers in the respective research domains, and which are regularly cited worldwide.


International journals are themselves classified into two sub-categories based on a combination of two criteria: influence and scope:


INT1 Sub-Category: international publications with high visibility and influence among researchers in the various research domains in different countries, regularly cited all over the world.


INT2 Sub-Category: international publications with significant visibility and influence in the various research domains in different countries.
