Journal Citation Reports (JCR)

Journal Citation Reports (JCR) is an annual evaluation of research journals, published by Clarivate Analytics. JCR contains information about research journals in the social and natural sciences, including the impact factors. It thereby helps you to gain an overview over suitable (Open Access) journals for a publication.

The ranking can also be helpful for detecting predatory journals. If a journal is not contained in this respective specialist database, it could mean that it is a predatory journal
