Most Australian academics will be familiar with ERA and its journal list. There is a bit of background available at wikipedia.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Excellence_in_Research_for_Australia The specs for the next ERA are in draft at the moment. The Australian Research Councils list of journals only contains ERA ID, journal title (and native title where the English title is different), and ISSNs. Wikidata already includes properties which institutions can utilise to better describe these journals, such as editor, publisher, establishment year, ISO 4 abbreviation, Bluebook abbreviation (for Law journals), preceeding journal, SCOPUS journal identifier. These properties are being populated from Wikipedia by my bot, but if anyone is interested I could use help in defining useful properties and populating them. -- John ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: "John Vandenberg" <jay...@gmail.com> Date: Feb 28, 2014 11:50 AM Subject: ERA journal list on Wikidata To: <era-discuss...@googlegroups.com> Cc: The ERA 2010 and 2012 journal lists are now available on Wikidata, an > extensible user generated data store, with their ERA Journal IDs. > > The Wikidata property for the ERA Journal ID is 'P1058' > > https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Property:P1058 > > Each thing in Wikidata has a 'Q' page, with a permanent ID associated > with it. e.g. Q23973 is Journal of Experimental and Theoretical > Physics. > > https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q23973 > > The complete list of items with that property is able to be viewed here: > > > https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere&target=Property:P1058&namespace=0 > > Wikidata can also be accessed programmatically.
