Each year the scholarly community eagerly awaits the annual release of the JCR, the most comprehensive collection of profiles and metrics supporting deep evaluation of journal attributes and performance. With the solution’s integration into next generation InCites, users can look beyond the global influence of a specific journal with new visualizations and analysis of Journal Impact Factors that directly link to article level data for open, transparent analysis. Users can also view data on top research/researchers in ESI, the leading solution for identifying the most influential individuals, institutions, regions, publications and papers within a specific field of science.
The 2014 edition of the JCR features 10,927 journal listings in 237 disciplines; 82 countries are represented. Additionally, 39 journals were suppressed due to abnormal citation activity. Suppressions aim to ensure the integrity of the reports. This edition takes a new approach to the suppression process. Instead of suspending a suppressed journal for two years, suppressions will now last one year before a journal is re-evaluated for listing.
“This is an exciting time for both Thomson Reuters and the scientific community,” said Gordon Macomber, managing director of Thomson Reuters IP & Science. “Earlier this year we marked the 50th anniversary of the Science Citation Index—the beginning of citation analysis—and the launch of the next generation Web of Science discovery platform. Now, with the launch of next generation InCites, we are advancing the approach to research evaluation by providing users with the ability to measure each piece of the research equation - at the journal, article, individual, institutional and regional levels.”
Provosts, funders, government policy makers, information professionals, research analysts, librarians and publishers will all benefit from the release of the next generation of InCites, with its unparalleled fresh and flexible interface that is intuitive enough for both experienced and novice researchers to conduct research, evaluation and benchmarking.

“Our clients have repeatedly expressed the need for additional benchmarking and analytics and we’ve worked side-by-side with them to create an intuitive research analytics platform to ensure our users are accurately documenting their activity and assessing their competitive position,” said Macomber. “Moving forward, academic assessment, evaluation and benchmarking will be simpler, clearer and even more precise, enabling scholarly professionals to make more informed decisions by connecting research to impact.”
