InCites Journal Citation Reports and InCites Essential Science Indicators

Further to our post in November 2015, it is now possible to link to the new InCitesTM versions of Journal Citation Reports and Essential Science Indicators direct from the Web of Science platform.  (Until May 2 this week, this was not possible due to a misconfiguration at Thomson Reuters.)

The links in the eresources@cambridge A-Z and in the LibGuides Databases A-Z have been updated.

Collectively Journal Citation Reports and Essential Science Indicators comprise Journal and Highly Cited Data, offering a much greater ease of use and flexibility for analysing and presenting citation data to support research (and ultimately to support the REF 2020).

Emerging Sources Citation Index – Web of Science

There is a new index in the Web of Science Core Collection:  Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).  The index expands the citation universe and reflects the growing global body of science and scholarly activity.

“ESCI complements the highly selective indexes by providing earlier visibility for sources under evaluation as part of SCIE, SSCI, and AHCI’s rigorous journal selection process. Inclusion in ESCI provides greater discoverability which leads to measurable citations and more transparency in the selection process.”

Emerging Sources Citation Index can be searched by selecting the Core Collection on the Web of Science platform and clicking on “More Settings”.  Tick the Emerging Sources Citation Index box.

ESCI is starting with 1,500 titles and aims to reach 5,000 within 2 years.  40% are in the sciences, 40% in the social sciences, 20% in the humanities.  46% are Open Access titles.  By positioning ESCI in the Core Collection, users are empowered to see the largest collection of peer-reviewed scholarly literature possible, while also being able to refine their focus on the highly curated and rigorously selected journals in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index.

There is a YouTube video describing the ESCI in more detail here: https://youtu.be/pWoQnFVoIXA

Access to Journal and Highly Cited Data from November 2015

Advance notice from MIMAS of forthcoming availability of Journal and Highly Cited Data:

Information Update:  Access to Journal and Highly Cited Data from November 2015

Thomson Reuters is delighted to introduce Journal and Highly Cited Data (JHCD) which comprises the NextGen Journal Citation Report (JCR) and NextGen Essential Science Indicators (ESI).

Effective from 31 December 2015 JCR and ESI will no longer exist independently and will cease to exist in their current format. The data from both JCR and ESI will be integrated and together will be available on the new InCites platform, which is fully integrated with Web of Science.

In order to ensure a smooth transition to the new platform, access for the new JHCD will be made available to all JCR subscribers from mid November.  This will enable users to become familiar with the new environment before JCR and ESI are switched off at the end of December 2015.

So – Watch this space for further information, annoucements.

Extension of trial access to Journal and Highly Cited Data until 25 October 2014

Trial access to Journal and Highly Cited Data has now been extended until October 25th 2014

Journal and Highly Cited Data (the module name for Journal Citation Reports – JCR, and Essential Science Indicators – ESI) is now on the InCites platform which offers a much greater ease of use and flexibility for analysing and presenting citation data to support research (and ultimately to support the REF 2020).

Access the new JCR here:
