Ranking Gender journals
Publications in refereed – top – journals are important for reseachers in the gender area. The European Science Foundation (ESF) made ranking lists for various research areas, including gender – the so-called European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH).
The ESF signed in January 2014 a memorandum of understanding with the Norwegian Social Science Data Services (NSD) to transfer the maintenance and operations of the European Reference Index for the Humanities to NSD. The ERIH database operated by NSD is called ERIH PLUS and you can find it here.

Quality and Relevance in the Humanities (QRiH)
QRiH is a set of instruments for assessing the quality and relevance of research in the humanities, designed at the request of the Alliance of National Organisations for the Deans of Humanities Faculties (DLG), Religious Studies (DGO) and Philosophy (DWB), and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences. The QRiH instrument is authorised by the National Authorisation Panel (LAP), established on 20 June 2017 by means of a joint resolution of the Alliance. QRiH was produced by the Quality Indicators in the Humanities or KIG project group at the request of the cooperating faculties cited above and funded by the Sustainable Humanities fund (2013-2017).
QRiH is an instrument for describing, systematically, quality and relevance in humanities research in the Netherlands. It takes the form of a narrative that describes research efforts and results in relation to one another, in accordance with the humanities research assessment manual. QRiH is mainly meant to be used in SEP assessments (Protocol for Research Assessments in the Netherlands) carried out by international committees. QRiH is also useful in other situations involving the assessment of research programmes.
Domain profiles are meant to support those writing the narrative part of the self-assessment report. Profiles help them account for both similarities and differences between the research unit and customary practices in the domain. The research cultures in the various humanities domains are rather diverse in some respects, but they are also highly similar owing to the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary nature of many domains. The website provides a brief description of the research culture in every domain, based on information provided by the domain panels and as described in the relevant research school’s annual reports and other documents.
