Each year, the Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) examines the influence and impact of scholarly research journals. JCR reveals the relationship between citing and cited journals, offering a systematic, objective means to evaluate the world’s leading journals.

 

Journal Citation Reports

The 2013 JCR study, released in July 2014, reveals that IEEE journals continue to maintain rankings at the top of their fields. Below are JCR results for IEEE journals in two major categories, based on three key methods of citation measurement.

Impact Factor is the average number of times articles from a journal published in the past two years have been cited in the JCR year. These results are those generally used and relied upon by technical publications and their stakeholders.

Eigenfactor® Score takes into account the number of times articles from a journal published in the last five years have been cited in the JCR year while also considering which journals have contributed these citations. High-scoring journals have a greater influence in the scientific community.

ArticleInfluence® Score formula determines the average influence of a journal's articles over the first five years after publication.

Year after year, IEEE journals are ranked highly across a number of JCR metrics.

Details of current IEEE journal rankings appear below. IEEE titles appear in bold.
