Journal of the American Society of Nephrology retains high impact factor for 2015
- 20 Jun 2016

The Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (JASN) retains a very prominent position in the field of nephrology in Impact Factor for 2015, with a score of 8.5 according to Journal Citation Reports® (JCR). This Impact Factors reflects the average annual number of citations in 2015 to articles published in a journal during 2013 and 2014.

Established in 1990, the monthly JASN is the leading kidney journal in the world, read and referenced more than any other publication in the field. Physicians and scientists read the journal to learn about the latest advances in renal disease, including dialysis, transplantation, immunology, hemodynamics, bone disease, clinical nephrology, epidemiology and outcomes.

JCR also reported that the society's Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology(CJASN) saw an Impact Factor increase to 4.7 for 2015.

One of the most widely read and referenced kidney journals, CJASN publishes high - quality research and reviews relevant to inpatient and outpatient care of individuals with kidney disease. Physicians read CJASN to learn about the most important clinical outcomes in kidney medicine, dialysis, metabolism and critical care.

JCR evaluates the world's leading journals, with quantifiable, statistical information based on citation data. Then compiling articles' cited references, JCR measures research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals.

The Optical Society journal portfolio continue to lead in the Optics Category in new JCR rankings
- 17 Jun 2016

The Optical Society (OSA) has announced that OSA Publishing remains the market leader in the field of optics and photonics. Its portfolio of 17 prestigious subscription-based and open access titles received the most citations (40% of the total) across the 90 titles in the Optics category in the 2015 Journal Citation Reports® (Thomson Reuters, 2016). Additionally, OSA Publishing's wholly-owned and co-published journals produced the largest number of articles published (35% of the total) of any other publisher in the category.

Optica, OSA Publishing's journal for high-impact research has been added to this year's Journal Citation Report with a partial Impact Factor (IF) score of 5.205. This number is based on citations to articles published in its first six issues rather than a full two-year span as is usual. Optica is a highly selective open-access journal that covers the entire spectrum of optics and photonics.

Advances in Optics and Photonics continues to grow in citations and has received an increased IF of 12.368, up 22% from 2015. Ranked third in the category, this prestigious journal provides comprehensive review articles and tutorials appropriate for students, researchers, faculty, business professionals and engineers across all areas of optics and photonics from fundamental science to engineering applications, including materials, devices and systems.

Thomson Reuters is recognised as an authority for evaluating scientific journals. Detailed information about the Journal Citation Reports is available on the Thomson Reuters website.

Nature Research journal portfolio posts strong performance in 2015 Journal Citation Reports
- 17 Jun 2016

The Nature Research journal portfolio, published by Springer Nature and launched less than two weeks ago, aspires to be the home of high quality single-discipline, multidisciplinary and open access research. The stable has demonstrated a strong showing in the 2015 Journal Citation Report as well as when broader citation and alternative metrics are considered.

The Nature Research portfolio encompasses the long-established multidisciplinary leader Nature and other relatively established players such as Nature Genetics and Nature Biotechnology. It also incorporates more recently launched journals including Nature Climate Change, which includes social sciences research, and a number of open access journals including Nature Communications and Scientific Reports.

The Nature Research titles, both subscription and open access, continue to perform well in their respective fields in Journal Impact Factors, as described in the 2015 Journal Citation Report (JCR), which indicate citation impact at a journal level. Nature-branded titles account for six of the top ten titles in the 2015 JCR Science Edition, and 17 of the top 50 (34%), more than any other publisher. 14 journals rank #1 in one or more subject category.

Nature remains #1 in the multidisciplinary sciences for the ninth consecutive year with an Impact Factor (IF) of 38.138. For the fourth year in a row, Nature Research's flagship open access journal Nature Communications, sits #3 in the multidisciplinary sciences, and Scientific Reports, another key open access offering, delivers a place in the top ten multidisciplinary sciences with an IF of 5.228.

Looking beyond the 2015 JCR, the Nature Research portfolio also performs well when other metrics such as alternative metrics are considered. 20 articles from Nature Research titles featured in the Altmetric top 100 of 2015, receiving coverage from over 5,000 news outlets, nearly 90,000 mentions on Twitter, and over 200 Wikipedia articles references. The number one article in the list, 'A new antibiotic kills pathogens without detectable resistance', was published in Nature in January 2015.

Emerald delivers significant Impact Factor increase
- 15 Jun 2016

Academic publisher Emerald Group Publishing has received its best ever results in the data release of the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) from Thomson Reuters for 2015, with three in every four journals seeing an increased Impact Factor.

Ninety percent of Emerald's indexed journals increased the number of citations they received from other JCR journals. Seventy two percent of journals saw an increase in their Impact Factor and six journals received Impact Factors above 2.000, which is double the number from the 2014 release.

Further analysis shows that the average change in citations received from other indexed journals was over 23%, while the average Impact Factor was up by 12.7%. Top performer was Internet Research, which received an Impact Factor of 3.017, almost doubling its score of 1.661 in 2014.

Emerald has a record number of titles indexed by Thomson Reuters with 64 titles, encompassing 61 journals and three book series. Three of the journals - International Journal of Sports Marketing and Sponsorship, English Teaching - Practice and Critique, and Journal of Korea Trade - are receiving Impact Factors for the first time as Emerald journals.

Results also showed significant long-term improvement in quality, with 74% of titles increasing their Five-Year Impact Factor, with an average change of over 21.7% - more than half of all titles indexed now have a Five-Year Impact Factor over 1.000.

These results follow further successes with Thomson Reuters indexation, as Emerald recently had its 100th journal accepted onto the Thomson Reuters Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). More than half of all Emerald's journals are now indexed by one of Thomson Reuters' indices.
