1 Introduction In recent years, the research on clustering journals of similar topics has attracted much attention of scientists. One important reason is that it is an intermediate step towards research portfolio analysis, which is the analysis of research programs that can be classified by any theme of interest, including those related to administrative needs, organizational structure, funding streams, goals, and results ( Srivastava, Towery, & Zuckerman, 2007 ). In such kind of analysis, journals need to be first grouped and sorted in the same category

Barriers Restricting the Free Dissemination of Scientific Achievements: Own Experiences in Crossing Walls and Bridges
The most important issues in the administration of modern science is "editorial correctness" of scientific articles. Editors of the most prestigious scientific journals know how to build an impact factor. Is an overly rigorous procedure for submitted manuscripts appropriate in every case?
The constant progress of science and the development of researchers is undeniable and remarkable. We dissociate ourselves from the principle of "publish a lot and quickly" recommended during the postdoctoral phase or other periods of a scientist's career. Quality requires time and humility towards that which was discovered and that which is still unknown.

1 Introduction Mapping the structure of science into hierarchical clusters/communities provides the basis of many further scientometrical investigations. For example, citation field normalization depends on the clusters ( Waltman, 2016 ). Evolution of science disciplines and the interrelation among them can be better captured at the level of clusters rather than at the level of individual journals or individual papers ( Shen et al., 2016 ). Furthermore, even a simple visualization of the map of science can be informative. Such clustering can be done in
