Identifying journals with high impact

There are various tools that you can use to identify journals with high impact within a specific subject field:

Try the below subject categories:

  • Agriculture
  • Biochemistry & Molecular Biology
  • Veterinary Sciences
  • Zoology
  • etc.

Using the same dataset as "Journal Citation Reports" (JCR), the Eigenfactor metrics try to overcome some problems inherent to the JCR Impact Factor:

  • Citation data are gathered for 5 years
  • Self-citations are removed
  • Quality of the citing journals is considered
  • Differences in citation patterns among disciplines are adjusted
  • Contains SJR values derived from the citation data in the Scopus Database
  • Journal list can be generated for a subject category. High impact journals indexed in Scopus can be identified by sorting journals' SJR
  • Also contains country ranking data
