What's New in Journal Citation Reports?

October 28, 2014

The latest release of Journal Citation Reports includes the following features and enhancements:

JCR Data Updates

After JCR data were published in July 2014, we were able to obtain materials whose absence had prevented journals from receiving a Journal Impact Factor, as well as to correct metrics for a small number of journals.  The 2013 JCR data (2014 release) are now complete and all updates have been fully incorporated into the product.

Expanded Metrics and New Features

  • Normalized Eigenfactor® is the Eigenfactor Score normalized, by rescaling the total number of journals in the JCR each year, so that the average journal has a score of 1. Journals can then be compared and influence measured by their score relative to 1. Available in both the Journal Rankings grid and on Journal Profile Pages.
  • Percentage of Articles in Citable Items gives information on what proportion of a journal’s citable items are Articles vs. Reviews. Available in both the Journal Rankings grid and on Journal Profile Pages.
  • Journal Impact Factor Percentile transforms the rank in category by Journal Impact Factor into a percentile, allowing more meaningful cross-category comparison.

New Features:

  • Open Access Filter and Badge - sort results by Open Access status and immediately identify Open Access journals by the badge on the Journal Profile page. 


  • New Data Downloads - On the journal profile page, users can elect to download the cited and citing data tables in CSV/XLS format. The Journal Relationships visualization is now downloadable in PDF format. 

  • Navigating Year-to-Year in the Journal Profle Page - view data that reflects the year of your choice by clicking the hyperlinked year in the Key Indicators table. 

  • Citable Items Document Page - now features the document type and allows filtering based on document type.
