The Australian computer science research association is crowdsourcing input for their journal rankings
(these rankings are pretty much definitive in Oz & NZ, and increasingly adopted throughout Asia)

They are interested in academics and researchers from outside Oz participating..

> Dear Computer Science Researcher,
> You are invited to participate in a crowdsourcing study run by CORE (Australasian COmputing Research and Education association) to collect opinions on the quality of various computer science journals. The intent is to analyse the usefulness of this data as input to a rankings process for adding or modifying rankings of journals in the CORE database (portal.core.edu.au/jnl-ranks). If aggregate opinions are found to be useful,they will be provided to the rankings committee for assessment regarding journal ranking decisions.
> To participate in this study you must be an active computer science researcher, and hold a PhD in the field.
> Further information, and the entry point to the survey can be found at http://portal.core.edu.au/core-survey.
> The success of crowdsourced data collection depends on obtaining large numbers of participants. Please assist by forwarding this invitation to interested colleagues, and relevant national and international lists of CS academics and researchers.
> Please do NOT reply to this email. If you wish to discuss this approach, please join the discussion list at http://www.core.edu.au/discussion-forum and use this for any discussion.
