Generator of Partial Lists of Journals

The program includes by default a vast list of journals belonging to the WoS repository, with more than 58.000 full and abbreviated titles of publications. In order to reduce the computational time required for searching into the referenced database of standardized journals, it is advisable to customize the list of journals.

The following Excel file is a generator of partial lists of journals. The user must provide key words (no limit in number) and the Generator will create a new partial list of journals that include any of those words in their full title.

NOTE: The Excel file runs a macro, and depending on the configuration of your MS Excel and/or antivirus, it is possible that it does not allow the macro to be executed. Please, take into consideration this issue and set up both softwares in order to run the program.
