Journal Citation Reports (JCR) – the recognized authority for evaluating journals, JCR helps users determine a journal’s impact and influence in the global research community. Using JCR, diverse users can derive useful information.
- Researchers can identify the most appropriate, influential journals in which to publish, as well as confirm the status of journals in which they have published.
- Librarians can support selection or removal of journals from their collections, and determine how long to keep each journal in the collection before archiving it.
- Journal’s editors can determine journals’ influence in the marketplace and review editorial functions.
- Administrators and information analysts can track bibliometric and citation patterns to make strategic and funding decisions.
