Finding Journal Impact Factors
using Journal Citation Reports -
InCites
Journal Citation Reports -
InCites
• Provides ranking for journals in the areas of science, technology, and social
sciences.
• For every journal covered, the following information is collected or
calculated: Citation and article counts, Impact factor, Immediacy index,
Cited half-life, citing half-life, Source data listing, Citing journal listing,
Cited journal listing, Subject categories, Publisher information.
• Limited to the citation data of Journals indexed in Web of Science
• Because impact factors mean little on their own, it's best to view
the journal you are interested in comparison to the other journals in the
same category.
Journal Impact Factor
• The impact factor (IF) is a measure of the frequency with
which the average article in a journal has been cited in a
particular year.
• It is used to measure the importance or rank of a journal by
calculating the times it's articles are cited.
• The calculation is based on a two-year period and involves
dividing the number of times articles were cited by the
number of articles that are citable.
