Research Evaluation Metrics

This page is developed as a tool to identify some influential journal titles in different disciplines. It provides information to identify and compare the status, citation frequency and impact of a range of leading English and Chinese journals useful for research evaluation.



Research Evaluation Tools

InCites Journal Citation Reports

http://www.lib.eduhk.hk/cgi-bin/WAMConnMgr?sid=jcr_new
InCites Journal Citation Reports includes citation data drawn from approximately 12,000 scholarly and technical journals and conference proceedings from more than 3,300 publishers in over 60 countries. It covers almost all specialties in science, technology, and the social sciences and enables the evaluation and comparison of journals to identify the top ranked and highest impact journals in a particular field.

InCites Journal Citation Reports listing impact factors for a number of journals; but not every journal is analysed by JCR. If you cannot find the journal title from JCR, please try other sources.


Web of Science (Social Sciences Citation Index and Arts & Humanities Citation Index)

http://www.lib.eduhk.hk/cgi-bin/WAMConnMgr?sid=isiwos
The Web of Science consists of citation databases containing the references cited by the authors of the articles. You can use these references to do cited reference searching. This type of search allows you to find articles that cite a previously published work. Social Sciences Citation Index includes over 2,400 journals across 50 social sciences disciplines with all cited references captured from indexed articles. Arts & Humanities Citation Index contains over 1,300 arts and humanities journals with all cited references captured from indexed articles.

SCImago Journal & Country Rank

http://www.scimagojr.com/
The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a portal that includes the journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus database (Elsevier B.V.). The SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) indicator shows the visibility of the journals contained in the Scopus database from 1996, and the H index quantifies both journal scientific productivity and scientific impact. These indicators could be used to assess and analyze scientific domains.

The Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) Initiative

The Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) initiative is developed by the Australian Research Council (ARC). It assesses research quality within Australia's higher education institutions using a combination of indicators and expert review by committees comprising experienced, internationally-recognised experts. The ARC has released the full ERA 2010 Ranked Journal List.

New round of ERA is scheduled for 2012, please find update information at http://www.arc.gov.au/era/era_2012/era_2012.htm

http://www.esf.org/index.php?id=4813
ERIH has been under development under the leadership of the European Science Foundation Standing Committee for the Humanities since 2002. The ERIH is the only Reference Index created and monitored by European scientists both for their own purposes and in order to reveal their ongoing research achievements to the rest of the world in a systematic way. It is a unique peer-review project that is subject to continual revision and development. In particular, in the context of a world dominated by publication in English, it highlights the vast range of world-class research published by humanities researchers in various European languages.
