|Emerging Technologies - Journal Citation Reports|
What is the most influential journal in your field? Where should you submit your article for publication to maximize exposure? Which journal might garner your research the most citations? Journal Citation Reports can tell you the top rated journals in your field (as determined by their various calculations).
Journal Citation Reports provides many journal ranking calculations, including:
Journal Citation Reports covers science and social sciences journals and lets you search by title, subject, publisher or country of publication. At GW, you can currently access 2011 data for over 8,300 science journals and 2966 social sciences journals. If you choose to view journals by subject, you can sort the list by title or by one of the metric categories.
The two lists shown in examples below illustrate the difference between impact factor and Eigenfactor rankings. New England Journal of Medicine, Lancet and JAMA are the clear leaders by both metrics, but the next six titles are rated differently for impact factor and Eigenfactor.
Journal Citation Reports is accessible through the Himmelfarb Library E-Databases page.
