Journal Citation Reports (JCR) provides easy access to data that
helps to evaluate and compare scholarly journals using citation
data from over 9000 journals in the Sciences and Social Sciences.
JCR is the source for the impact factor of a journal, a measure of
the frequency with which articles in a journal have been cited in a
particular year. It provides subject groupings of journals,
enabling users to view and compare citation information among
journals in the same subject area.
A representative from Thomson Reuters, will discuss:
- Journal selection policy for Web of Science and JCR
- Using JCR wisely (Using JCR data in context)
- Producing the Impact Factor
- Indentify top journal in a field by ranking journals by Impact
- Discover related journals by examining “citing” and “cited”
- Understanding other key journal metrics:
- Eigen Factor Score
- Article Influence Scores
- 5 Year Impact factors
- Citation Half-Life
Note: JCR might be helpful to you in preparing your PAF.
Lunch will be served.
