Journal Citation Reports (JCR)


The library subscribes to Journal Citation Reports through the Web of Science database.


JCR is a resource allowing evaluation and comparison of journals using citation data drawn from thousands of worldwide scholarly and technical journals. It covers most areas of science, technology and social sciences. The reports show you:


·        most frequently cited journals in a field

·        highest impact journals in a field

·        number of times an article is cited
