Comparison of Journal Citation Reports and Scopus Impact Factors for Ecology and Environmental Sciences Journals
Gray, Edward; Hodkinson, Sarah Z.
Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, n54 Sum 2008
Impact factors for journals listed under the subject categories "ecology" and "environmental sciences" in the Journal Citation Reports database were calculated using citation data from the Scopus database. The journals were then ranked by their Scopus impact factor and compared to the ranked lists of the same journals derived from Journal Citations Reports. Although several titles varied significantly in impact factor and rank, the Journal Citation Reports and Scopus lists had a high degree of statistical similarity. (Contains 2 tables.)
