Journal Impact factor (JIF) is a measure available for some 9,000 science and social sciences journals indexed in Web of Science and can be accessed via Journal Citation Reports (JCR).

Our Research Guide has information on how to access and search JCR.  The Guide has also information about other indicators of journal impact available in JCR.    

If your journal does not have an Impact Factor, you may want to check out journal-level indicators available for Scopus or Google Scholar-indexed journals. Consult our Research Guide for definition of these indicators and how to access them.
