Independent assessment of the journal
The Australian Research Council updated its rankings of journals in 2012. The Digital Evidence and Electronic Signature Law Review was awarded a C grade, with an ERA ID code 40109.
On 4 June 2010 an application was made that the journal be included in the Scopus database. The title was accepted on 7 May 2012. The comments of the reviewer were included in the response:
The editor thanks all those that have helped make this journal a critical success.
‘The lack of citations to papers published here is disturbing, but there is no disputation that the subject matter is of immense and increasing social, political and legal significance. To those who follow technology, even at some distance, these papers are fascinating and, at times, frightening. But now that super-sophisticated IT technology is carried around in the hip pockets of teenagers around the world, it is safe to say that nearly everyone will be affected, sooner or later, by one or more of the issues discussed in this journal, and if inclusion in Scopus helps to spread the word and increase the world’s legal sophistication when it comes to IT matters, all very much to the good! Welcome to Scopus.’
