Determining a Journal's Impact

InCites Journal Citation Reports (JCR) is the official source of Journal Impact Factors™. It is published annually in two editions, Science and Social Sciences. JCR also provides additional journal metrics. For more information, please contact Research Support Service, Library UniSZA.

Scopus Jurnal Analyzer Scopus also offers tools to track, analyze and visualize research. One of them is the "Compare sources" tool, which provides quick and easy view of journal performance. It allows you to compare up to 10 journals. Full citation data are available from 1996 and are updated every two months.

Eigenfactor  Scientific journals are rated by the number of incoming citations, where citations from more highly ranked journals make a greater contribution to the eigenfactor than citations from more poorly ranked journals.  The score was developed at the University of Washington by Jevin West and Carl Bergstrom.

Harzing's Publish or Perish  The software program uses Google Scholar to retrieve and analyze academic citations to present statistics on citations, journal metrics, and author metrics.

ImpactStory (formerly Total Impact)  The open-source tool provides a comprehensive look at a scholar’s research impact, ranging from journal article metrics to blog posts, datasets, and software.
