Incites Journal Citation Reports (JCR) and Essential Science Indicators (ESI)

database

Provider: Thomson-Reuters
Contents: ,
Access Level: , ,
Descriptions: Journal Citation Reports (JCR) has a new look! The JCR module within InCites allows you to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from approximately 12,000 scholarly and technical journals and conference proceedings from more than 3,300 publishers in over 60 countries.  In addition to finding the most frequently cited and highest impact journals, JCR on InCites enables you to:

  • Compare multiple subject areas or compare multiple journals
  • Use the visualization to see strength of citation relationships
  • Run analyses across editions (Science and Social Sciences) and across years
The InCites platform includes access to Essential Science Indicators (ESI). ESI can determine the influential individuals, institutions, papers, publications, and countries in their field of study — as well as emerging research areas that could impact their work. This compilation of science performance statistics and science trends data is based on journal article publication counts and citation data from Thomson Scientific databases. Users can access both JCR and ESI on the same InCites platform.

SJR- SCImago Journal and Country Rank

database

Provider: SCImago
Contents: , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: Based on data indexed in SCOPUS, SJR graphs a number of metrics on scientific publications and publishing. Some unique aspects of the journal analysis include: proportion of cited to uncited/citable to uncitable articles; percentage of a journal's articles that are indicative of research resulting from international collaboration; ranking of countries and regions of the world according to publication output and citation; and an interactive map feature that generates graphic co-citation networks among disciplines, by country and time period. The opening page of SCImago sums it up: "Rank - Analyze - Compare - Visualize."

Journal Citation Reports (JCR)

database

Provider: Thomson Reuters
Contents: , ,
Access Level: , ,
Descriptions: The JCR gathers statistical data for the purpose of evaluating and comparing scholarly and technical journals, using citation data drawn from over 7,500 journals. Originally a part of the Science Citation Index, the Journal Citation Reports were also a great innovation that came to be considered the single impartial, authoritative measure of a journal's quality and influence. In recent years, there have been serious challenges to this view, and some alternative systems of journal evaluation have been introduced that have aimed to correct the problem of bias in the data on which this still very influential analysis system for journals was founded. Annual editions of JCR from 2000 to approximately the most recently-previous year are accessible online. Journal Citation Reports rates journals on the basis of: most frequently-citedby discipline; highest-impact in a field; and largest in a field.

Altmetrics

database

Provider: Altmetrics
Contents: , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: Altmetrics is interested in formulating a new kind of impact factor for developments in science, based in part on capturing and factoring in the scientific community's more rapidly available reactions to new papers and research as they are expressed in social media. At the organization's website, read its manifesto, follow links to investigate tools designed to gather data from online sources, and explore important papers that have sparked and furthered this movement. Provides links to websites and software like Crowdometer, PLOS Impact Explorer, ScienceCard, and ReaderMeter.
