    Journal Citation Reports (Web of Science Group) - NOAA-wide


    Journal Citation Reports is a comprehensive and unique resource that allows you to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from over 11,000 scholarly and technical journals from more than 3,300 publishers in over 80 countries. It is the only source of citation data on journals, and includes virtually all areas of science, technology, and social sciences.

    *Journal Citation Reports can show you the most frequently cited journals in a field, highest impact journals in a field and the largest journals in a field. JCR impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year or period. *The annual Journal Citation Reports impact factor is a ratio between citations and recent citable items published: a journal's impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
