DEVIS, José Devís et al. Physical activity and sport sciences spanish scientific and technical journals: ISO norms adjustment and normalization grade. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2004, vol.33, n.1, pp. 38-47. ISSN 0100-1965. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-19652004000100005.
The objective of this paper is to know the normalization grade and adjustment of Spanish scientific and technical journals of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences to various key epigraphs of the ISO 8-1977 and ISO 215-1986 norms. Also two indexes are made to calculate the General Normalization Grade (GGN) and the Fundamental Normalization Grade (GFN) of the journals. Results show that journals adjustment to ISO 8-1977 is equivalent to the journals of other Spanish fields as Economy and Technology, while it is less adjusted in relation to ISO 215-1986. Most of the journals show an inferior GFN respective to its GGN. A considerable range of improvement in the journals studied, especially in the fundamental aspects of the ISO 215-1986 norm and some of the ISO 8-1977 norm, is the main conclusion of the study.
