Measuring Your Research Impact


Journal rankings are widely used to indicate an academic journal's quality and impact. Rankings indicate a journal's place and prestige within its field, and rankings may correlate with the difficulty of being published in a journal. They can be used by authors for publication choices.

Journal metrics tools can be used to:

  • identify core or major journals within a field of study
  • analyze the impact of a journal on research in the field
  • evaluate journals
  • measure usage
  • rank journals by impact factor and other measures
