Find the Right Journal to Publish Your Work
To evaluate a journal in a specific area, we usually use metrics called Journal Impact Factor. Visit this guide to learn how to find a journal’s Impact Factor in Journal Citation Reports.
However, not every journal has an Impact Factor. To evaluate journals in a field such as social science and humanities, you may need to use more than one metrics, e.g., SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper), SJR (SCImago Journal Rank) or newly launched CiteScore. The first two metrics allow you to compare journals across different subject fields. Visit this guide to know how to find SNIP and SJR in Scopus. To learn more about CiteScore, click here.
Auto journal pick-up tools from publishers
Some publishers also provide handy tools for picking up the best fit journals automatically. By typing in the title, abstract, or keywords of your paper, the tool will generate a list of best fit journals for your manuscript. Note that most publishers' journal suggesters will only recommend their journals within their own portfolio.
Make Altmetrics Work for You
Altmetrics, also known as alternative metrics, are increasingly used to capture the amount of online activity for a scientific output e.g. the number of “tweets” a work has received, the number of times a work is mentioned in LinkedIn and Wikipedia, and the number of downloads in Mendeley. It is viewed as a way to measure the immediate impact and influence of a work.
Altmetrics are generated and gathered immediately after a work gets shared on an online sphere, while core citation metrics such as citation counts take time to accumulate.
Altmetrics capture data from a variety of sources, including social media such as Twitter, Facebook and Google+; multimedia platforms such as YouTube and Slideshare; Wikipedia; blogs and online reference management tool - Mendeley, while core citation metrics are confined to the traditional academic publishing setting.
- Not Just Citations
Apart from quantitative data such as the number of Tweets and the number of shares on Facebook, opinions of readers can also be viewed thus quantifying the engagement and scholarly conversation on social media.
Major tools include Altmetric.com, PlumX and Impactstory. Altmetrics data is also available for some research outputs in PolyU Institutional Research Archive (see an example here). Some databases and journal publishers such as Scopus, SpringerLink and PLOS also provide altmetrics data for articles indexed in respective databases. Visit this guide on altmetrics and learn more about the emerging way of measuring impact of research and the way to capture the metrics.
