Interdisciplinary journal article citation index plus author, article, and journal level research metrics


Three different types of journal metrics are available:

  1. CiteScore
  2. SJR
  3. SNIP

There are two approaches to access these scores:

  • Citescore (Sources). Citescore allows you to search and browse for individual titles to learn more about impact factors. Citescore is freely available online.
  • Journal Analyzer (Compare Sources). The Journal Analyzer allows you to compare multiple journals against each other in addition to seeing their individual impact factors.  This tool is available to the DMU community through the library subscription to Scopus.
