Journal Citation Reports

If you've ever wondered about how to choose the 'best' journal in a discipline to submit your article to, Journal Citation Reports is the resource for you.

This comprehensive and unique resource tool allows you to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from over 7,000 scholarly and technical journals from more than 3,300 publishers in over 60 countries. It is the only source of citation data on journals, and includes virtually all specialties in the areas of science, technology, and social sciences. Journal Citation Reports can show you the:
  • Most frequently cited journals in a field
  • Highest impact journals in a field
  • Hottest journals in a field
  • Leading journals in a field
  • Most published articles in a field
JCR is available from the Medical Library's home page - look for Journal Citation Reports under Major Resources.

JCR is part of the ISI Web of Knowledge.
