Announcement of the latest impact factors from the Journal Citation Reports

Researchers consider a number of factors in deciding where to publish their research, such as journal reputation, readership and community, speed of publication, and citations. See how we share a whole range of information to help the research community decide which journal is the best home for their research as well as what the metrics can tell you about the performance of a journal and its articles.
