Abstract: A program of monitoring, evaluation and promotion of the locally published journals (LPJs) has been chosen in Serbia to be the first step in strategic efforts to raise the quality and impact of the national research. The rationales of the program, as well as its outputs and outcomes are here described. The position of LPJs as an entity within CRIS-CERIF architecture is shortly discussed and some arguments in favor to the treatment of LPJs as a separate entity of the highest level are outlined. According to the results so far, such a solution is effective, and might be plausible for policy-makers and developers in other countries of similar socioeconomic status, particularly so in nations of so-called small languages.
