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.

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.
