Now within InCites platform, the Journal Citation Report (JCR) module allows researchers 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. JCR also offers interactive features supported by visualizations of JCR indicators that allow researchers to compare, evaluate and inform their decisions on published research in varying fields.

The JCR can tell you:

  • the total number of times that each journal has been cited in a given year (Total Cites) 
  • the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year (Impact Factor)
  • how quickly the average article in a specific journal is cited (Immediacy Index)
  • the number of articles published in the year of coverage (Articles)
  • the ongoing use of a particular journal (Cited Half-life).

The 2016 version JCR also allows you:

  • to review and compare journal titles in desired subject categories, within a specific institute, based on a chosen indicator
  • to recognize trending journals in key research categories
  • to identify ideal journals in which to publish your forthcoming research
  • to visualize the results in graphs
