InCites Journal Citation Reports. Science Edition


InCites Journal Citation Reports allows you to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from approximately 12,000 scholarly and technical journals and conference proceedings from more than 3,300 publishers in over 60 countries, covering virtually all specialties in the areas of science, technology, and social sciences. Each annual edition contains the citation data from the JCR year indicated and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals.

To help you discover which are the most significant journals to you, JCR can show:

  • Most frequently cited journals in a field
  • Hottest journals in a field
  • Highest impact journals in a field
  • Subject category data for benchmarking

The Library has subscribed to two JCR editions:

  • Science Edition (SCIE): Contains data from over 8,000 journals in 171 subject categories
  • Social Sciences Edition (SSCI): Contains data from over 2,900 journals in 55 subject categories
