Journals appearing in JCR

A complete list of the titles covered in this year's JCR is available at: http://about.jcr.incites.thomsonreuters.com/full-titles-2015.pdf

JCR Data Updates

After the initial annual JCR release is published, this section will be updated weekly with notes about pending additions or adjustments to the JCR data. All changes will be reflected in the JCR application when the dataset is reloaded and closed later in the year. Citation metrics published in this section can be considered official JCR data.

This is unlikely to change, but should be considered provisional until the data are reloaded later in the year.

A note about the Cardiac & Cardiovascular Systems category:  Just prior to release of the 2014 data we became aware of a significant overcounting of citations to European Heart Journal Supplements, currently listed as the #2 ranked journal in the category.  An accurate Journal Impact Factor will be listed here in Notices shortly.  We provide this advance notice that rankings for many journals in this category will shift upward by one position when the data are reloaded in September.

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.
