Evaluating Journals

Open publication – Free publishing

Various methods have been developed to evaluate academic journals and create journal rankings.

  • Impact Factors: available in Journal Citation Reports (JCR) and other citation analysis tools serve as indicators of the impact, or influence of a journal.  Though controversial, Impact Factors, which rank journals within a discipline, are extensively used in the sciences.
  • Journal Citation Reports (JCR): provides journal performance metrics for evaluating and comparing scholarly journals in science and social sciences. Using citation data drawn from over 10,000 high-impact international journals, Journal Citation Reports offers a quantifiable statistical method for identifying the most important and influential journals in a field.
  • SCImago Journal Ranking: is a weighted metric. The freely accessible web site contains rankings of more than 20,000 journals from the Scopus, one of the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, covering the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences and arts & humanities.
  • offers two ways to rank journals: by “Eigenfactor” or by “Article Influence”.  You can obtain Eigenfactor Score and Article Influence Score of a particular journal in Journal Citation Reports database, or search on website. ranks the influence of journals much as Google’s PageRank algorithm ranks the influence of web pages.
