How do I find the impact factor and rank for a journal?
UVA and UVA Health faculty, staff and students can use the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) to locate impact factors. The impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The JCR also lists journals and their impact factors and ranking in the context of their specific field(s).
NOTE: if you are affiliated with the UVA School of Medicine, the Library can generate a report with Times Cited, Impact Factor, Journal Category and Journal Rank data for SOM faculty publication lists. This saves a great deal of time on this process. To get help, Ask Us to consult with a librarian, or email email@example.com.
