2012 JCR Data Release

This release of Journal Citation Reports provides 2012 data. The 2013 data will be made available in Journal Citation Reports mid-year 2014

Journals appearing in JCR

A complete list of the titles covered in this year’s JCR is available at: http://scientific.thomsonreuters.com/imgblast/JCRFullCovlist-2013.pdf.

Regional Content Expansion

Throughout the years 2007-2009, more than 1,600 journals that focus on topics of regional interest were added to Web of Science. Data used to calculate JCR metrics include citations from these journals as each was included in our citation indexes. Most of these titles are now included in the list of titles available in the 2012 JCR. To get information about the new regional content, go to http://isiwebofknowledge.com/products_tools/multidisciplinary/webofscience/contentexp/.

2012 JCR Data Update

After JCR data are published in June 2013, this section will be updated weekly with additions or adjustments to the JCR data. All changes will be reflected in the JCR Web interface when the dataset is reloaded and closed in September 2013. Citation metrics published in this section can be considered official JCR data.

Journals with an adjustment that would bring them into the top 10 in one or more categories, as ranked by Journal Impact Factor will have expected rank in category information noted. This is unlikely to change, but should be considered provisional until the data are reloaded.

Expanded Metrics and Features

  • 5-Year Journal Impact Factor is the average number of times articles from a journal published in the past five years have been cited in the JCR year. For journals in subjects where citation activity continues to rise through several years, this metric allows more of their total citation activity to be included in a critical performance metric.
  • Eigenfactor® Metrics, comprising the Eigenfactor® Score and Article Influence® Score, use JCR citation data to assess the influence of a journal in relation to other journals. These metrics, based on five years of citation activity, consider not just the count of citations but the structure of the citation network. Eigenfactor Metrics are available only for JCR years 2007 and later.
  • Journal Self Cites provides analyses of journal self citations and their contribution to the Journal Impact Factor calculation.
  • Rank-in-Category reveals the ranking of a journal in its subject categories based on the Journal Impact Factor. An accompanying Impact Factor box plot depicts the distribution of Impact Factors for all journals in a category.
