New Editions of CiteScore Metrics and Journal Citation Reports (JCR)

The new yearly editions of Scopus CiteScore and Clarivate Analytics Journal Citation Reports (JCR) are available. 

While no one metric should be given too much weight, authors considering where to submit a manuscript may want to use these sources to look into journals’ citation patterns. Researchers and students new to a field may want to look at rankings within a subject category to discover journals to read. Learn more about the JCR release and the CiteScore release. 

CiteScore metrics are freely available to the public. Jeffersonians can also find it by logging into Scopus and clicking Sources at the top of the page. 

Journal Citation Reports (JCR) is available to Jeffersonians from the list of databases. 

Please contact Ask a Librarian or the CTL Office for Professional Writing, Publishing, and Communication with any questions about journal metrics.
