This module within Web of Science's InCites allows you to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from Web of Science. Impact Factors and Journal Quartiles are provided for all the journals indexed by Web of Science.
Journal Citation Reports Impact Factor allows for the comparison and ranking of journals within the same discipline. The Impact Factor only measures the interest of other researchers in an article, not its importance and usefulness. More information about the Impact Factor is available on the JCR Impact Factor help page.
To find the Impact Factor of a journal:
carry out an author search in Web of Science
click on the title of the article which is published in the journal you're interested in to bring up the record of the article
scroll down to the 'Journal Information' section, and click on the 'Journal Citation Reports' link
this will take you into JCR and display the current and historical Impact Factor of the journal
To find the Journal Quartile in JCR:
scroll to the bottom of the page and click on 'Rank' on the bottom left hand menu
Google Scholar Metrics summarise recent citations to many publications, to help authors as they consider where to publish their new research. To get started, you can browse the top 100 publications in several languages, ordered by their five-year h-index and h-median metrics.
To see which articles in a publication were cited the most and who cited them, click on its h-index number to view the articles as well as the citations underlying the metrics.
You can also explore publications in research areas of your interest. To browse publications in a broad area of research, select one of the areas in the left column. For example Engineering & Computer Science Health; Medical Sciences.
To explore specific research areas, select one of the broad areas, click on the Subcategories link and then select one of the options. For example: Development Economics.
Browsing by research area is, as yet, available only for English publications.
You can search for specific publications in all languages by words in their titles. Scholar Metrics are currently based on our index as it was in July 2019
