Comparaison inter-classements des revues en sociologie-démographie et en science politique

Abstract : The French Agency for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (AERES) recently published journal rankings in the human and social sciences. This document compares AERES rankings for francophone journals in sociology/demography and political science with two former rankings, by Philippe Jeannin and by the authors of a CNRS-sponsored “Periodicals study” respectively. We first observe that the threefold classification used in each ranking resorts to different criteria, in such a way that no methodological consensus seems to emerge from the comparison. The rankings themselves are starkly heterogeneous: in political science, only 11 journals appear in the two compared rankings, eight of them only with the same rank. In sociology/demography, 26 ‘ranking agreements' and 17 divergent rankings are observed within the range of comparable journals.
