Wiley continues as the world's leading society publishing partner, and 58% of Wiley-published titles listed in the JCR are society publications.

Wiley dominates in several important fields. In Limnology, Andrology and Dermatology, for example, Wiley published more than 40% of the papers. In Physics, Condensed Matter 43% of Impact Factor cites were to a Wiley journal and 4 of the top 10 titles were published by Wiley. Even more impressive, Wiley netted 6 of the top 10 titles in both Biodiversity Conservation and Ecology.

Wiley's proprietary portfolio continues to perform well in the JCR, with 283 journals seeing a rise in their Impact Factor and 83 top 10 rankings.

Six proprietary journals are ranked #1 in their category: International Journal of Energy Research, Mass Spectrometry Reviews, Periodontology 2000, Sustainable Development, Global Change Biology Bioenergy and Global Change Biology, which maintains its top position for the tenth year in a row. Three proprietary titles received their first Impact Factors, with Stat and Veterinary Medicine and Science ranking in one category and Managerial and Decision Economics ranking in two.

Of the 718 titles in the JCR that Wiley publishes on behalf of societies, 449 (63%) saw their Impact Factors increase in 2018.

Sixteen titles ranked #1 in their category. Computer-Aided Civil and Infrastructure Engineering topped three categories with Milbank Quarterly topping two. In addition to World Psychiatry ranking no.1 in two categories, it retained its #1 rank in the Social Science Citation Index, increasing its Impact Factor to 34.024. CA-A Cancer Journal for Clinicians retained its top rank in its category, the Science Citation Index and the overall JCR.

Seven society titles achieved their first Impact Factor including Clinical&Translational Immunology, ESC Heart Failure, Asia&the Pacific Policy Studies, Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology and Social Anthropology. Journal of Renal Care was ranked across three categories with Policy and Internet over two. Additionally, ChemistrySelect received its first full 2-Year Impact Factor.

Seven society titles saw their Impact Factor more than double, including Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health, netting them their top-ranking spot in Demography, and the Open Access title CTS-Clinical and Translational Science, putting them well on track to be a beacon for translational research.

Impact Factors are an important measurement for a journal and Wiley uses them alongside a variety of other journal and article level metrics. Wiley will continue to invest in journal performance insights to enable the communities we support.

EDP Sciences journals reports impressive results in 2019 Journal Citation Reports
- 28 Jun 2019

EDP Sciences has reported excellent results in the 2019 Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) published by Clarivate Analytics. Twenty-one EDP Sciences journals are tracked, over half of which show an increase in their Impact Factor with nine increasing by over 10%.

Astronomy&Astrophysics earned an increased Impact Factor of 6.209 - up 11.6% from last year. Its Impact Factor has risen steadily over the past four years and the increase is a fitting achievement in its 50th anniversary year.

Since its launch in 1969, Astronomy&Astrophysics has been publishing the highest quality, pioneering, scientific research. It is now the leading original research journal in its field and has retained its rank of 10/69 in the Astronomy and Astrophysics category which has more journals in it than last year. Its special issues are particularly valued by the community and include Gaia Data Release 1 and Planck 2015 results which would have contributed to this year's Impact Factor.

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate is an international open access journal which has seen a rise in its Impact Factor to 2.821 from 2.333 last year. This represents an increase of 20.9%. Notably, it also enjoys a strong five-year Impact Factor of 3.368.

The journal continues to innovate to meet the needs of its audience and recently launched the "Agora" supplement for papers on public outreach, historical accounts, commentaries, and meeting and project reports. Agora papers are reviewed by members of the Editorial Board, indexed similarly to regular JSWSC papers, and citable. The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate has moved up in all three categories in which it is tracked and now ranks solidly at 30/86 (Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences), 25/69 (Astronomy and Astrophysics) and 30/84 (Geochemistry and Geophysics).

Four journals in the mathematics portfolio are published in partnership with the Société de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SMAI) and are considered to be high-impact journals of excellence. Three of these are included in the JCR - ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations, ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis and ESAIM: Probability and Statistics - and all three have seen increases to their Impact Factors. In particular, ESAIM: Probability and Statistics now stands at 0.652 following a 32.3% increase from last year and ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis ranks 39/254 in Applied Mathematics.

In the area of Materials Science, Engineering and Technology, Oil&Gas Science and Technology for Engineering makes an impressive leap of 31.8% to 1.867 and is ranked 4/19 in Petroleum Engineering. Mechanics&Industry sees a 13.4% rise to 0.747 and Metallurgical Research&Technology enjoys an increase of 11.7% to 0.641.

The Impact Factors for many other journals continue to increase or hold steady which is encouraging in a competitive climate. Notable amongst the increases is Radioprotection which has increased by 104% to 0.458. This is the largest percentage increase amongst all the EDP Sciences journals. Aquatic Living Resources also gains 64.6% to achieve an Impact Factor of 0.864 and RAIRO-Operations Research increases by 33.7% to 0.639. The European Physical Journal Applied Physics (EPJ AP) remains consistent at 0.800.

American Chemical Society journals continue to publish the most impactful research in chemistry
- 24 Jun 2019

The scholarly publications of the American Chemical Society (ACS) have once again been ranked as the most cited and most impactful across their respective subject categories, as reported by the 2018 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) from Clarivate Analytics' Web of Science Group. The latest JCR rankings highlight the sustained quality, relevance and global prominence of the research published across the breadth of the Society's preeminent peer-reviewed journals.

The following indicators also demonstrate how ACS journals continued to be the most significant in chemistry during 2018 - Researchers: Published 51,154 articles in ACS journals (up 11% annually); Readers: Downloaded ACS full-text articles more than 130 million times (up 27%); Authors: Cited ACS journal articles more than 3.4 million times (up 7%). Taken together with the JCR rankings, these achievements emphasize the Society's influence and central role in publishing the highest-quality science on a broad scale, in close partnership with the global research community.

Almost half of ACS titles achieved JCR Impact Factors greater than 5.0 in 2018, according to the Web of Science Group's statistics. The latest metrics also affirmed the important impact of the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) and the growing influence of ACS Central Science - both preeminent forums for publishing groundbreaking findings of broad significance across the chemical sciences. JACS recorded its highest-ever Impact Factor at 14.695, again ranking ahead of other major multidisciplinary chemistry publications, and affirming its reputation as the most-cited journal in chemistry, with more than half-a-million citations in 2018. ACS Central Science, the Society's award-winning, fully open access journal, has quickly emerged as the platinum standard for publishing interdisciplinary chemical research of exceptional quality. Free to both authors and readers, its Impact Factor grew to 12.837 in 2018.

One of the Society's newer publications, ACS Energy Letters, achieved a remarkable second reported Impact Factor of 16.331. That journal's editorial influence highlights the intended broad appeal of its coverage of alternative energy capture, conversion and storage - in keeping with the Society's mission as a provider of indispensable research information - including studies that foster research related to the United Nations' global sustainability goals.

Complementing the Society's portfolio of original research journals, ACS titles dedicated to the publication of timely and topical reviews also continue to be highly influential and relied upon by scholars. Accounts of Chemical Research and Chemical Reviews each recorded significant Impact Factors. Presenting concise summaries of recent research developments, Accounts of Chemical Research (21.661) offers easily understandable overviews of basic and applied research advances across the landscape of chemistry and allied sciences. Chemical Reviews (54.301, its highest Impact Factor ever) provides authoritative and incisive reviews of seminal research that are acknowledged to be the most comprehensive in the chemical sciences.

Of the 53 ACS journals with 2018 JCR rankings, more than 75% are positioned within the top quartile of their respective topical categories. Full 2018 JCR data for ACS journals is available at: https://axial.acs.org/JCR/.
