Journal Analyzer in Scopus

The Scopus Journal Analyzer allows you to select up to 10 journals in a specific field. The results are uploaded into graphs, making it easy to see how journals are performing relative to each other.  For authors, this data can help you to decide where to publish to get the best visibility for your work and how to prioritize your submissions.  The Scopus Journal Analyzer is updated bi-monthly and includes new journals as well as journals not considered by existing metrics such as ISI’s Impact Factor.
To learn how to use the Journal Analyzer, view the 5-minute tutorial at:
