The Dalhousie Libraries recently acquired Journal Citation Reports (JCR) Online. JCR, an ISI Web of Knowledge publication, is a comprehensive and unique resource that allows you to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from over 8,400 scholarly and technical journals from more than 3,300 publishers in over 60 countries. It is the only source of citation data on journals, and includes virtually all areas of science, technology, and social sciences. JCR can show you:
- the most frequently cited journals in a field
- the highest impact journals in a field
- the largest journals in a field
Citation and article counts are important indicators of how frequently current researchers are using individual journals. By tabulating and aggregating citation and article counts, JCR offers a unique perspective for journal evaluation and comparison.
JCR Online is available via the database search on the Libraries website and also in Novanet, our online catalogue.
