Journal Citation Reports


What is the JCR?

JCR (or Journal Citation Reports) is the source for Impact Factors

for journals in the sciences and social sciences.  Impact factors, developed by ISI, are numbers representing the number of times articles in a journal have been cited relative to how many articles are published in the journal.  Impact factors are a way to determine the relative usefulness or prestige of a journal. See our document on Using JCR Wisely.

There are 2 editions of the JCR, the Science edition and the Social Sciences

The JCR is updated annually and the edition for a particular year typically comes out in the fall of the following year. For example the JCR for 2003 would become available in Fall 2004.
