Of particular note are the increases and continued impact of Journal of Neurotrauma with an 18% increase, Journal of Endourology with a 23% increase, DNA and Cell Biology with a 25% increase, and Environmental Engineering Science with a 49% increase.

Seven journals received first impact factors this year, including Soft Robotics with a groundbreaking first impact factor of 6.130 and LGBT Health with a first impact factor of 2.261.

Flagship publications Human Gene Therapy, Tissue Engineering, and Stem Cells and Development maintained strong impact factors and reinforced their positions as leaders in their respective fields.

Thomson Reuters unveils 2016 ranking of most influential scientific journals
- 14 Jun 2016

The Intellectual Property&Science business of Thomson Reuters has announced the 2016 update of its Journal Citation Reports® (JCR), the world's most influential resource for evaluating peer-reviewed publications and the source of annual journal metrics, including the Journal Impact Factor (JIF).

The Journal Citation Reports provides an assessment of a journal's standing in scholarly literature through the objective evaluation of quantifiable, statistical information. The analysis comprises citation data, impact and influence metrics, and millions of cited and citing journal data points from the Web of Science, the industry's leading citation indices in the sciences, social sciences, and arts and humanities.

The 2016 release, with 2015 citation data for literature within the sciences and social sciences, features 11,365 journal listings in 234 disciplines; 81 countries are represented. A total of 239 journals received their first JIF; 57 percent of journals saw an increase in JIF from last year and 42 percent saw a decrease. Additionally, 18 journals were suppressed to ensure the integrity of the reports. Suppressed journals are re-evaluated after a year for reconsideration in the JCR.

The journal selection process is an ongoing exercise focused on identifying, evaluating, and selecting the most important and influential international and regional journals for coverage in the Web of Science. Once the requisite three consecutive years of known source item counts are available, the data for each listed journal are analyzed and published in the JCR.

Exclusively available as a module within Thomson Reuters InCites, an integrated web-based platform for measuring research output and impact, monitoring trends and benchmarking articles, journals, institutions and people, the JCR comprises citation data, impact and influence metrics and millions of cited and citing journal data points from the Web of Science. JCR and the InCites platform also enable users to perform a comprehensive, rich and deep analysis and exploration of journals and the specific articles within a publication.

Thomson Reuters announces the world's most influential scientific minds
- 18 Jan 2016

The Intellectual Property (IP) and Science business of Thomson Reuters, has announced the release of 'The World's Most Influential Scientific Minds,' a citation analysis identifying the scientists - as determined by their fellow researchers - who have made the most significant global impact within their respective field of study.

The two-part study includes an 11 year assessment of research paper citations to determine the leaders within 21 broad fields of science and a ranking of 2015's top scientists or 'hottest researchers,' revealing significant growth in cancer genomics and improvements in converting solar cells into renewable energy.

The report draws on data and analysis performed by Thomson Reuters IP&and Science bibliometric experts via InCites Essential Science Indicators℠, a leading web-based research analytics platform and a unique compilation of science performance metrics and trend data based on scholarly paper publication counts and citation data from the Web of Science, the premier web-based environment for scientific and scholarly research.

The longer-range study, widely known as the Highly Cited Researchers, recognises nearly 3,000 scientists who published the greatest number of articles ranking among the top one percent by citations received in their respective fields in each paper's year of publication. Analysts assessed more than 120,000 papers indexed between 2003 and 2013 throughout each area of study.

The 2015 hottest researchers ranking spotlights the scientific community's emerging trends and 19 innovators, who recently published at least 14 papers with notably high levels of citations. The list was identified by tabulating citations within the Web of Science recorded during calendar year 2014 for papers published between 2012 and 2014.

Stacey B. Gabriel of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard tops the list for the second consecutive year for her contributions to the Cancer Genome Atlas project, providing molecular portraits of tumors afflicting the breast, lung and other areas of the body. Her most recent papers examine the genetic underpinnings of schizophrenia and Alzheimer's. She is followed by newcomer, Oxford University's Henry J. Snaith, a physics and material scientist for his work on perovskite solar cells to advance solar energy technology.

Emerald partners with Thomson Reuters to help maximize the impact of authors' work
- 30 Nov 2015

Academic publisher Emerald Group Publishing has announced a partnership with Thomson Reuters on its newly-launched Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) to maximize the scholarly impact of authors' work.

Emerald has had 43 journals accepted in ESCI, which extends the universe of publications in Web of Science (previously ISI) to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields.

43 Emerald journals have been accepted by ESCI. All ESCI journals are searchable, discoverable and citable.

Authors and researchers whose work is accepted in ESCI will be given real-time insight into a journal's citation performance while the content is considered for inclusion in other Web of Science collections. They will be able to measure the contribution of an article in specific disciplines and identify potential collaborators for expanded research.

ESCI provides Web of Science users with expanded options to discover relevant scholarly content. ESCI is an edition of Web of Science, so subscribers will gain access through their existing subscription.

Journals in ESCI are searchable, discoverable and citable; authors and researchers get real-time insight into a journal's citation performance while the content is considered for inclusion in other Web of Science collections as well. Among those is Journal Citation Reports, which includes the impact factor.

IOS Press journals to be included in ESCI are: Advances in Neuroimmune Biology; Biomedical Spectroscopy and Imaging; Computability; Intelligent Decision Technologies; Intelligenza Artificiale; International Journal of RF Technologies-Research and Applications; Journal of Berry Research; Journal of Computer Security; Journal of Huntingtons Disease; Journal of Integrated Design&Process Science; and Multiagent and Grid Systems.
