Journal Citation Reports Indicators

The InCites Explorer includes Journal Citation Reports journal indicators and links to JCR Journal Profiles within the results table.  For research producers, these indicators identify the share of work published in top journals, enhancing promotion or enabling strategies for improved standing within the community and among competitors.  Publishers can now leverage the improved features of InCites Benchmarking to track performance of journals, identify significant contributors, and benchmark against competitors.


  • For all indicators in the InCites Explorer, the timeperiod filter will dictate the JCR year of the indicator displayed.
  • For instance, a timeperiod filter of 1980-2013 will display the 2013 JCR indicator.  A timeperiod filter of 1980-2012 will display the 2012 JCR indicator.
  • All indicators are covered from 1997 - 2013.  
  • See JCR Data and Subscription Notifications for a list of titles in the current JCR.
