Clarivate Unveils 2020 Journal Citation Reports

Clarivate rolled out the 2020 update to its annual Web of Science Journal Citation Reports (JCR), which “enables the research community to evaluate the world’s high-quality academic journals using a range of indicators, descriptive data and visualizations. The [JCR is] used by academic publishers across the globe to evaluate the impact of their journals relative to their field and promote them to the research community.” Highlights of this edition include the following:
  • The journals selected for inclusion: This year’s edition includes more than 12,000 journals from 83 countries across five continents and 236 research categories in the sciences and social sciences. More than 1,600 journals are fully open access. …
  • New descriptive data on open access models: New data show each journal’s articles by access model. This provides the research community with transparent, publisher-neutral information about the relative contribution of articles published free to read and re-use under Creative Commons licenses (‘gold open access’) to a journal’s overall volume of content and citations. …
  • Objectivity in journal selection: Clarivate has suppressed 33 journals from the JCR this year to support the integrity of the reports, representing 0.27% of the journals listed. The JCR monitors and excludes journals that demonstrate anomalous citation behavior including where there is evidence of excessive journal self-citation and citation stacking. In 2020, the methodology and parameters for the effect of journal self-citation on JCR metrics has been updated to better account for discipline norms.
