Other Sources of Journal Rankings

  • The most recent Eigenfactor Scores are included in Journal Citation Reports (JCR). The original free site for Eigenfactor Scores is also available but the data are at least 6 months to one year behind what's in JCR.

    Eigenfactor scores not only consider how many citations a journal receives but also the rank of the citing journals; the scores also take into account the differing citation behaviors of subject areas.  Consequently, the scores are most useful for comparisons across fields or for interdisciplinary research.  Eigenfactor  scores use citation data from the previous 5 years of articles (compare to CiteScore's 3 years, and JIF's 2 years).   

     A training module for fiinding journal data in Journal Citation Reports show how to find the Eigenfactor score. 
  • ERIH Plus is a not journal ranking scheme but rather a listing of humanities and social science scholarly journals that meet a high criteria for inclusion.  Journals can be searched by title or ISSN or the complete list of titles may downloaded for import into a spreadsheet. 
  • Google Scholar (Journal) Metrics (GSM) ranks publications in Google Scholar by analyzing the last five years of journal articles from websites that follow Google's inclusion guidelines as well as conference articles and preprints from a small number of manually identified sources. GSM excludes publications with less than 100 articles during the five-year period and those with no citations. The metrics provided are the h5-index and the h5- median. 
    • The h5-index is defined as "the h-index for articles published in the last 5 complete years. It is the largest number h such that h articles published in 2011-2015 have at least h citations each."
    • The h50-median is defined as "is the median number of citations for the articles that make up its h5-index."
  • Harzing.com - Journal Quality List  compiles rankings of journals from various sources in the areas of Economics, Finance, Accounting, Management, and Marketing.
  • Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) and SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) scores are both found in Elsevier's new metric site, CiteSource  Both SNIP and SJR take citation behavior in different subject areas into account, so these scores are more useful in comparison of journals across different subjects.
