The Compare Journals feature can be accessed by either clicking Compare Journals beneath the search tool on the Journals By Rank page, or by checking those journals you'd like to compare on the ranked list and clicking Compare Selected Journals. Comparisons can be conducted for the following:
- Trend Comparison: illustrates the activity or progress of one indicator in one subject area for a selection of journals across a range of JCR years
- Quartile Comparison: enables users to compare various quartile metrics for selected journals within a given subject categorization.
Simply click on the radio button for the report type you'd like and apply the journals, JCR Year, Metrics, and Category information and click Submit. The category list that appears under Select Category includes only those categories that all selected journals you've chosen have in common. If no categories appear, your selection of journals does not include any categories that all journals share.
You can return to any reports created here by clicking Save and assigning a name. Your report can then be accessed in My Saved Custom Report Selections.
