(28 Jun 2023) Today marks the 2023 release of the annual Journal Citation Reports™ (JCR™). You will notice that this year, it looks a little different – so this blog will walk you through what’s new and what future changes you can expect to see as we seek to continuously improve these reports.
We are proud to release the latest suite of JCR metrics, which cover more than 21,500 journals across 250+ scientific and research disciplines. As we announced in July 2022, starting this year we have extended the Journal Impact Factor™ (JIF™) to all quality journals in the Web of Science Core Collection™, including the Arts & Humanities Citation Index™ (AHCI) and Emerging Sources Citation Index™ (ESCI).
You will also notice that this year the JIF displays to one decimal place, rather than three decimal places. This change affects how journals are ranked within the JCR, both in 2023 and 2024.
