IEEE Journals Sustain High Rankings in Newest Citation Reports

13 July 2012  IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization, has maintained its position as one of the top publishers of science and technology journals. According to the 2011 Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports (JCR) released in June 2012, IEEE journals sustained their status as premier scholarly publications, earning high rankings in the Impact Factor report. The following publications ranked number one in their respective categories:

• IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials (Telecommunications and Computer Science, Information Systems categories)
• IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics (Automation & Control Systems)
• IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence)
• IEEE Transactions on Systems Man and Cybernetics Part B—Cybernetics (Computer Science, Cybernetics)
• IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems (Computer Science, Hardware & Architecture)
• IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics (Engineering Manufacturing)
• IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems (Transportation Science & Technology)

According to the 2011 report, IEEE publishes:

• 17 of the top 20 journals in Electrical & Electronic Engineering
• 8 of the top 10 journals in Telecommunications
• 4 of the top 5 journals in Computer Science, Hardware & Architecture
• 4 of the top 5 journals in Automation & Control Systems
• 4 of the top 5 journals in Computer Science, Cybernetics
• 3 of the top 5 journals in Robotics
• 2 of the top 5 journals in Computer Science, Theory & Methods
• 2 of the top 5 journals in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence
• 2 of the top 5 journals in Imaging Science & Photographic Technology

The report also found that IEEE publishes all of the top ten journals in the Telecommunications and Electrical & Electronic Engineering categories based on the Eigenfactor score, a scale that measures the number of times articles from a journal are published in the last five years.

The JCR offers a systematic, objective means to critically evaluate the world's leading journals. By compiling articles' cited references, the JCR helps to measure research influence and impact, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals.
