Journal Assessment

The CWTS Journal Indicators tool provides rankings of highest-impact journals within subdisciplines ... based upon SCOPUS citation patterns.

  • Remember, SCOPUS covers only a core set of journals in each field.
  • Not every discipline is well represented in SCOPUS, so this may not be complete for some fields.

A new Relative Citation Ratio (RCR) calculation attempts to place an individual article citation number in context with other articles in the same field. See iCite, the NIH tool for calculating RCRs. There is also an article describing the RCR approach.
