Technical professional organization IEEE has announced that its journals once again dominated the citation rankings across multiple technology fields including Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Telecommunications, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Hardware, Automation & Control Systems, Cybernetics, Imaging Science, and more, according to the 2021 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) from Clarivate, released in late June 2022.
In fact, a wide range of IEEE publications were consistently listed among the top-cited journals in multiple categories of the JCR findings as measured by Journal Impact Factor, including the highest ranking journal in seven JCR categories: Automation & Control Systems; Cybernetics (Computer Science); Hardware & Architecture (Computer Science); Information Systems (Computer Science); Imaging Science & Photographic Technology; Telecommunications; and Remote Sensing.
The annual JCR study by Clarivate examines the influence and impact of scholarly research and offers a systematic, objective means to evaluate the world's leading journals. By compiling articles' cited references, the JCR helps to measure research influence and impact, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals.
IEEE also monitors other common bibliometric journal measurements such as Article Influence® Score and Eigenfactor®. Although calculated differently than Impact Factor, IEEE journals score extremely well in those additional citation measurements as well. In fact, IEEE Access, IEEE’s largest fully open access publication, is ranked as the No. 1 journal by Eigenfactor in Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications, and increased in Impact Factor to 3.476 in the latest report.Click here to read the original press release.
