Web of Science Highlights Journal Citation Reports Data

The Web of Science Group, part of Clarivate Analytics, rolled out the 2019 update to its annual Journal Citation Reports (JCR). It aggregates all citations created by researchers through the delivery of publisher-independent data, metrics, and analysis of academic journals. Key information includes the following:
  • This year 283 journals have been added, 108 of which are fully open access. The JCR report reflects cover-to-cover indexing of 2.3 million articles, reviews and other source items. The 11,877 journals hail from 81 countries across five continents.
  • The report covers 236 disciplines, including the introduction of three new ones: Quantum Science & Technology (SCIE), Development Studies (SSCI) and Regional & Urban Planning (SSCI).
  • Seventeen journals have been suppressed from the JCR this year to ensure the integrity of the reports, representing 0.14% of the journals[.] The JCR is the only citation index which monitors and excludes journals that demonstrate anomalous citation behavior including where there is evidence of excessive journal self-citation and citation stacking.

For more information, read the press release.
