Clarivate Analytics selected to provide research metrics from Web of Science for the National Institutional Ranking Framework
- 17 Nov 2016

Clarivate Analytics, formerly the IP&Science business of Thomson Reuters, was selected to provide research metrics from Web of ScienceTM for the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF). Data from the Web of Science will be one of the multiple parameters used to analyze over 3,000 academic institutions and rank them based on a combined framework developed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). Clarivate will conduct this analysis in collaboration with the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) and INFLIBNET, as formalized in a three-part Memorandum of Understanding.

The Indian government plans to release its ranking in April of 2017. In addition to an overall ranking, it will include rankings within specific disciplines such as engineering, medicine, pharmacy, architecture, law and management.

A key change in the NIRF for 2017 is the inclusion of research quality metrics in granting the research score to each institute. The Category Normalized Citation Impact is one such research quality metric. This normalizes the citation count for each article for publication year and subject category. An additional research quality metric used is the number of highly cited papers as featured in the Web of Science database. This recognizes the leading papers in a particular field based on the number of citations it has received.

The Web of Science database provides a single destination to access the most reliable, integrated, multidisciplinary research. Used by over 7,000 research organisations across the world, Web of Science consists of seven citation databases including sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities covering impactful scientific research from scholarly books, journals, conference proceedings, published data sets and patents. Web of Science data has been used in other global rankings such as Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities, Reuters Top 100 most innovative Asian universities and the CWTS Leiden Ranking.

ASME journal selected for inclusion in a Thomson Reuters Web of Science Core Collection
- 11 Aug 2016

Journal of Micro and Nano-Manufacturing, a publication of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), has been selected for inclusion in a Thomson Reuters international database of leading scholarly journals.

Journal of Micro and Nano-Manufacturing will be covered in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science Core Collection, a renowned citation database which lists more than 12,700 technical journals spanning varied professional fields and disciplines.

Users of Web of Science employ the powerful database as a search tool to track prior research, analyse trends, identify researchers and business leaders, and gain insights into emerging technologies. The journal will be indexed and abstracted in Thomson Reuters' new Emerging Sources Citation Index, which will allow the ASME publication to enjoy increased visibility and credibility in emerging scientific fields.

Journal of Micro and Nano-Manufacturing compiles scholarly peer-reviewed papers focusing on theoretical and applied research in the areas of micro- and nano-manufacturing related to process innovation, accuracy and precision, material utilization, compact equipment development, environmental and life-cycle analysis, and predictive modeling of manufacturing processes.

The Society's Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Applications is also cited in the Thomson Reuters Web of Science Core Collection.

IEEE Access accepted into Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Expanded
- 29 Jul 2016

IEEE Access, an open-access multidisciplinary journal published by IEEE, a technical professional organisation advancing technology for humanity, has been accepted into the Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Expanded. Starting with Volume 1 of 2013, IEEE Access will now be included with more than 6,500 notable journals, in the Web of Science, Journal Citation Report, and Current Contents Engineering, Computing and Technology edition.

Inclusion in Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Expanded will allow researchers to accurately track citations of IEEE Access articles in later research and measure their impact.

IEEE Access is also expected to receive its first Impact Factor rating in June of 2016. This will provide a snapshot of how frequently IEEE Access articles are cited in other journals during a particular year. The 2016 Impact Factor will cover volumes from 2013, 2014, and 2015.

IEEE Access employs a rapid, binary peer-review process with a typical submission to publication time of just four to six weeks and offers articles that are of high interest to readers-original, technically correct, and clearly presented. The scope of this all-electronic, archival publication comprises all IEEE fields of interest, emphasising applications-oriented and interdisciplinary articles.

SAGE Publishing reports continued strong growth in 2016 release of Journal Citation Reports
- 14 Jul 2016

Academic publisher SAGE Publishing reported continued strong performance and growth across its journals portfolio in the Journal Citation Reports (Source: 2015 Web of Science Data).

With 548 journals now ranked in the JCR, SAGE continues to experience consistent growth within the reports, achieving a 42% increase over the past five years. In this year's reports, over 100 SAGE journals have received a top 10 category rank, with 5 journals receiving their first Impact Factor (IF). 242 titles are now placed in the top 30% of the JCR, and 55% of SAGE journals are ranked within the top half of their subject category.

A 36% increase in coverage in the SSCI over the last five years means that there are now 386 SAGE journals in the SSCI. 61% of the SSCI journals received an increased Impact Factor. 148 journals are now placed in the top 25% of the JCR rankings for their category, an increase of 8 journals from the 2014 reports.

5 journals received their first Impact Factor, including Organizational Psychology Review with a first Impact Factor of 2.069. Many journals experienced a large increase in Impact Factor including Journal of Consumer Culture, and Work and Occupations, both doubling their Impact Factor to 2.816 and 2.667 respectively.

SAGE has seen a 70% increase over the past five years in the number of titles indexed in the SCI index. This has primarily been a result of the organic growth across our journals portfolio and SAGE's strategic acquisitions across the medical, engineering and technology disciplines. SAGE continues to significantly grow its coverage within SCI with 205 journals now ranked and 52 journals in the top 25% of their SCI categories.

Of particular note are the journals within clinical neurology and neurosciences categories, which performed particularly well, with 2 year Impact Factors ranging from 7.295 to 4.671 for titles including The Neuroscientist; Cephalalgia; Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism; and Multiple Sclerosis Journal. In addition, the Journal of Sandwich Structures and Materials, and Ultrasonic Imaging, and Health Informatics Journal, received notable Impact Factors, doubling from 2015 achieving 2.852, 2.111, and 1.578, respectively.
