The Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database is a unique and comprehenisive tool providing bibliometric analysis of more than 5,000 journals in the areas of science and technology and of 1,500 journals in the social sciences. Coverage is international and includes journals published by over 3,000 publishers in 60 countries.
The aim of the JCR is to provide a systematic and objective means of determining the relative importance of science and social sciences journals within their subject categories. Information for each title includes the "impact factor" (measurement of the frequency with which the average article has been cited in a particular year) and the "immediacy index" (how quickly the average article in a journal is cited). The JCR can show you the:
- highest impact journals
- most frequently used journals
- hottest journals
- largest journals
- Current two years
- Citations? No
- Abstracts? No
- Full Text? No
