Journal Citation Reports (JCR) is available through the Web of Science database.
Key metrics covered in this tool include:
Journal Impact Factor - the frequency with which an average article from a journal is cited in a particular year.
Five-Year Journal Impact Factor - the average number of times articles from the journal published in the last five years have been cited in a particular year.
Immediacy Index - measures how frequently the average article from a journal is cited within the same year as publication.
JIF (Journal Impact Factor) Percentile - the journal's rank in category, determined by Journal Impact Factor and expressed as a percentage.
Eigenfactor Score - measures citations a journal receives as well as the structure of the citation network as a whole to measure citation influence in the scholarly literature.
Users must login to use certain features, such as creating journal lists and customizing indicators. Click the Sign In drop-down arrow near the center right of the screen to register for a free account and sign in.
To search for complete journal profiles, enter the journal name in the Master Search box. Journal profiles provide key indicators, such as Total Cites, Journal Impact Factor, Immediacy Index, and more.
Key indicators can have their trends shown visually by clicking the Graph link under each.
Each profile contains Cited Journal Data and Citing Journal Data, which allows for finding additional articles through citation chaining. For more information, please see the library's Citation Chaining guide.
