Scholarly Research Impact

This guide is designed to help you to understand the different ways to increase and measure the impact of your research.

Journal rankings - Scopus

Scopus allows users to find the CiteScore, and CiteScore rank & trend by selecting source in  the source line in the results screen of a Scopus search.

To see this information in a journal search, search for the journal title after selecting "Source Title" in the all fields box on the search screen. Then perform your search, putting quotation marks around the journal title. This tells the system to search the words in the title as a phrase.

Then you can retrieve the CiteScore information by selecting the source link in any record in the results list.

Journal rankings - Google Scholar

Google Scholar rankings list all of the journals in a discipline or subdiscipline based on the H5-index or H5-median. These rankings are available through Google Scholar Metrics.

To find rankings from the home page, click on one of the categories under "English" (or select another language), then click "Subcategories" for subdisciplines. The default ranking is by H5-index, but can be resorted by H5-median by clicking on the top of the appropriate column.

Google Scholar Metrics can also be searched by keyword, pulling up an informal ranking list of journals with that word in the title. Below is a chart of the first few journals with the word "interdisciplinary" in the title, sorted by H5-index.
