The New Journal Citation Reports is Here

Citation and article counts are important indicators of how frequently current researchers are using individual journals. By tabulating and aggregating citation and article counts, JCR offers a unique perspective for journal evaluation and comparison. JCR Science Edition contains data more than 8,000 journals in science and technology. Journal Citation Reports can show you the most frequently cited journals in a field, and the highest impact journals in a field.
