2010 Journal Citation Reports have been published

By compiling articles' cited references, the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) help to measure research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals. The results are published each year, and the 2010 results have now been released.

You can now find out the 2010 Impact Factor for your journals - that is the average number of 2010 citations to articles published in your journal title during 2008 and 2009. Remember that you should compare Impact Factors only between journals within the same subject area - JCR can help you do this as it provides subject category lists and rankings. There are other metrics within the JCR as well, so you can get a more rounded picture of the quality of your journals.

Find out more about journal quality measures by coming along to the Publish or Perish: but Where? seminar as part of our Research Bites 2011.
