The Evaluation of Taiwan Humanities and Social Sciences Journals and the Collection of Core Journals accept applications every year. Applicant journals in each research field are assessed and ranked according to four indicators. Upon the approval of the academia joint meeting, the results of journal rankings and the list of core journals are announced. The latter comprise a list of journals that have applied for and passed the evaluation.
