The Joys of Journal Rankings

What are journal rankings? Journal rankings are used to measure and compare the influence of journals at journal level rather than article or author level. Journal ranking information can be found using SJR (SCImago Journal & Country Rank), Scopus Journal Analyser, Web of Science and Google Scholar Metrics. Some journal impact factors may also be found on publisher’s websites.

To find a journal ranking in SJR, click on the link; type in the name of the Journal title (for example: “Journal of Educational Psychology”). Information about the journal will be returned; including H index value and Quartiles for the subjects the journal has been catagorised into. Hover your mouse over the green squares of the years to find out what quartile the journal has been added to.
