New Trial Database...

A new database is available for trial, Journal Citation Reports. To access JCR, go to the library web page --> Journal Articles --> Databases by Trial Subscriptions. Journal Citation Reports is a comprehensive and unique resource tool that allows you to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from over 7,000 scholarly and technical journals from more than 3,300 publishers in over 60 countries. It is the only source of citation data on journals, and includes virtually all specialties in the areas of science, technology, and social sciences. Journal Citation Reports can show you the:
Most frequently cited journals in a field
Highest impact journals in a field
Hottest journals in a field
Leading journals in a field
Most published articles in a field Both two editions are included in this trail (1997 for trial purposes):
Science Edition: Contains data from over 5,700 journals in the areas of science and technology.
Social Sciences Edition: contains data from over 1,700 journals in the social sciences. What does JCR reports mean to you? As an author, JCR enables you to identify journals in which to publish, confirm the status of journals in which you have published, and identify journals relevant to your area of research.
