The Australian RQF panels for 2008 will
(a) use journal importance (probably JIF),
(b) use citation metrics, generated centrally, and
(b) each of the 13 panels will come to an independent decision during the
first part of 2007 as to how to weight/use those metrics. One panel deals
with Mathematics and Information Technology.
