Key Article Databases

Journal Rankings

On occasion, the quality of research can be indicated by the calibre of the research publication.  Several measures have been attempted to determine the research value of academic journals.  Check the following resources to find publication measures.

eigenFACTOR.org

Provides two scores for each journal: Eigenfactor Score (EF): "A measure of the overall value provided by all of the articles published in a given journal in a year"; and an Article Influence Score (AI): A measure of a journal's prestige based on per article citations".

ScienceWatch

Tracks trends and performance in basic research including most cited articles. Part of the site called Sci-Bytes provides data on journal rankings. From Thomson Reuters, providers of JCR. However, information here is freely available.

SNIP (source normalized impact per paper)

Developed by the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University for Scopus. Data is available by journal on this site.
