The 2010 Journal Citation Reports Has Been Released

On June 28th, the 2010 Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) was released and it’s more comprehensive than ever before. As always, the report uses a combination of influence and impact metrics, millions of data points and both cited and citing journal metrics to put each journal in context within the realm of scholarly literature.   

The 2010 JCR covers more journals, more fields, and more regions. This year 1,075 new titles were added to the JCR, resulting in a grand total of 10,196 journals. In fact, the Sciences Edition and the Social Sciences Edition both increased by more than 20%.

A significant factor in the growth of JCR has been the Web of ScienceSM Regional Content Expansion Initiative. Web of Science has strived to include journals that cover topics of regional importance from a regional perspective, without sacrificing our focus on quality. As a result the journals in the 2010 JCR represent some of the leading regionally-focused journals in 84 countries, reflecting the increasingly global nature of scholarly research.
