Exploring Scimagojr and Journal Citation Reports

76

In this post, I retrieved and presented listings of top journals from Scimagojr and Journal Citations Reports.

According to its website, The SCImago Journal & Country Rank is a “portal that includes journals and country scientific indicators developed from the information contained in the Scopus® database (Elsevier B.V.). These indicators can be used to assess and analyze scientific domains.”

Journal Citation Reports is the current de-facto database to retrieve impact factors of scholarly journals.

Both lists are presented in tables. The Scimagojr list is created in a simple table. Straightforward with no frills. I created the table in Microsoft WORD and used the new “Paste from Word” function in WordPress to add the content. So easy.

The Journal Citation Reports list is created in a table that has some mouse-over effects. It started out as a table in a WORD document but was beautified with colour and a mouse-over effect by generating the mouse-over script and additional styling code using the table generator found at http://textfixer.com/html/html-table-generator.php.
