EDP Sciences reports strong performance in the 2016 Impact Factor results
- 16 Jun 2017

Not-for-profit publisher EDP Sciences has reported a strong performance in the recently announced 2016 Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) published by Clarivate Analytics, 2017.

EDP Sciences has 20 journals indexed of which over half showed an increase in their Impact Factor, and 38% reported an increase of over 10%.

Astronomy&Astrophysics maintained an Impact Factor of above 5 (5.014). Known as one of the leading resources in the field, the journal has moved up 2 places in the rankings of the Astronomy and Astrophysics category to be placed 10th out of 63 journals in the discipline

Parasite continued its rapid growth in Impact Factor with a 42.9% increase on last year's results, from 1.781 to 2.545. The journal's Impact Factor has risen by 133% over the past two years and the journal is now placed 13th out of 36 journals in the Parasitology category, up from 19th place

Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate stayed strong with an Impact Factor of 2.446

EPL: Europhysics Letters has grown by 74% over two years, with a 2016 Impact Factor of 1.957

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis&ESAIM: Control Optimisation and Calculus of Variations both remained strong with Impact Factors of 1.727 and 1.54, respectively.

International Journal of Limnology and Knowledge and Management of Aquatic Ecosystems both saw their Impact Factors rise above 1 (1.161 and 1.217 respectively) with International Journal of Limnology recording the highest percentage increase of 112.25%.

Cochrane announces 2016 Impact Factor for Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews
- 15 Jun 2017

Cochrane, a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers and people interested in health, has announced that the Impact Factor of Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) is now 6.124. According to 2016 Journal Citation Report (JCR), released by Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson ISI), this is a slight increase on the 2015 impact factor, which was 6.103.

The CDSR impact factor is calculated by taking the total number of citations in a given year to all Cochrane Reviews published in the past 2 years, and dividing that number by the total number of Reviews published in the past 2 years. It is a useful metric for measuring the strength of a journal by how often its publications are cited in scholarly articles.

Some highlights of the CDSR 2016 Impact Factor include: the CDSR is ranked 14 of the 154 journals in the Medicine, General&Internal category; the CDSR received 57,740 cites in the 2016 Impact Factor period, compared with 47,899 for the 2015 Impact Factor calculation; the total number of times the CDSR was cited increased from 47,899 in 2015 to 57,740 in 2015 meaning the CDSR received the 5th highest number of citations in its category; and the 5-Year Impact Factor is 7.018.

The main Impact Factor report and the CRG reports will be delivered after the JCR is updated in September. This is because, as has happened in previous years, Clarivate was unable to accurately index Cochrane Reviews for this Impact Factor window; Wiley and Cochrane are following-up with Clarivate regarding the calculation of the 2016 impact factor.

Emerald Publishing delivers its Impact Factor results
- 15 Jun 2017

Academic publisher Emerald Publishing has received its Impact Factor results in the data release of the 2016 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) from Clarivate Analytics, with overall citations up by 41 percent.

Emerald has seen more journals accepted into the SSCI (Social Science Citation Index) this year, with seven journals having been accepted since January 2017 including the Journal of Health Organization and Management, which has received its first Impact Factor of 1.07.

The inclusion of Asia Pacific Journal of Marketing and Logistics; International Journal of Bank Marketing; Journal of Product&Brand Management; Journal of Social Marketing; Marketing Intelligence&Planning; and Sustainability Accounting Management&Policy Journal represents a substantial increase in coverage for Emerald's journals collection, with over 40 percent of Emeralds Marketing journals now indexed in the SSCI.

Emerald's impressive Impact Factor performance follows hot on the heels of the news that Emerald remains - according to CiteScore - the publisher with the leading share of titles in the Business, Management&Accounting field, with over 16 percent of the sector. CiteScore claims to be one of a number of measures that help provide a holistic overview of a Scopus-indexed journal or serial title's performance in the index.

Clarivate Analytics unveils 2017 Journal Citation Reports
- 15 Jun 2017

Clarivate Analytics, formerly the Intellectual Property&Science business of Thomson Reuters, has released the 2017 Journal Citation Reports (JCR), an annual update of the most influential and comprehensive resource for information on highly cited, peer-reviewed publications and the source of Journal Impact Factor (JIF) scores.

Since 1973, the JCR has provided an assessment of a journal's standing in scholarly literature through the objective evaluation of statistical information, which only a publisher-independent company such as Clarivate Analytics, can provide. The analysis comprises citation data, impact and influence metrics, and millions of cited and citing journal data points from the Web of Science, the citation index in the sciences, social sciences and arts and humanities.

The JCR offers a variety of metrics to analyse journal activity - from open access to ranking top journals by disciplines, further enabling publishers, editors and researchers to better understand and measure the impact of their activities on addressing issues such as global health and climate change through their research.

Despite the thousands of papers published on climate change, controversy still lingers. To help add clarity to what the research data is revealing, the JCR identifies the top five research fields in climate change as Environmental Sciences, Meteorology&Atmospheric Sciences, Geosciences-Multidisciplinary, Ecology and Geography-Physical.

The 2017 JCR release, which represents 2016 citation data for literature within the sciences and social sciences, features 11,459 journal listings in 236 disciplines with 81 countries represented. A total of 132 journals received their first JIF in this report; 66 percent of journals saw a year-over-year increase in their JIF and 33 percent saw a decrease. These high-impact journals are at the heart of the Web of Science, the most comprehensive network of citations of over 33,000 journals.

The Journal Impact Factor is the ratio of 2016 citations to articles published in that journal in the two previous years. To ensure the JIF remains transparent to the research community, Web of Science will provide direct links to the source documents comprising the JIF denominator in later 2017. In addition, with 2018 JCR release, direct links will also extend to the JIF numerator.

As Clarivate Analytics continues to accelerate its investment in innovation, reinforced by the acquisition of Publons, the release of the JCR also includes new enhancements such as Percent Citable Items and new filters making analysis of the JCR easier. Percent Citable Items shows the percentage of a journal's content that is considered 'citable' for the JIF calculation.

JCR is available on InCites, an integrated web-based platform powered by data from the Web of Science. It is used for measuring research output and impact, monitoring trends and benchmarking articles, journals, institutions and researchers.

In addition, JCR Journal Impact Factor Quartile metrics will be added to InCites Benchmarking&Analytics. Institutions evaluating the impact of their research can use journal quartiles to better understand the portion of their faculty's output that is published in top journals, as well as track changes over time.
