CiteScore: a new metric to help you track journal performance and make decisions

Elsevier is launching CiteScore metrics as a new standard that gives a more comprehensive, transparent and current view of a journal’s impact that will help you guide your journal more effectively in the future.

CiteScore metrics are part of the Scopus basket of journal metrics that includes SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper), SJR (SCImago Journal Rank), citation- and document- counts and percentage cited. The integration of these metrics into Scopus provides insights into the citation impact of more than 22,220 titles.

Suna Kıraç Library can prepare reports using this source to find a journal and view associated metrics such as journal impact factors.

Google Scholar Solution:

A Google Scholar profile is a very simple way of collating your publications and citations to them so that others can find your work and often find an accessible copy that they can read. Once you have set up your profile, you can choose automatic updates so you don’t need to spend a lot of time updating your publications list. If you create a Google Scholar profile, your profile will come high up the page rankings if people are searching for your work.

If you are working in an area that is not well covered by the Scopus or Clarivate bibliometric tools above, Suna Kıraç Library can use the free Publish or Perish software to analyse and create a report of your citations using the data from your Google Scholar profile.

Be aware that this free service is provided by Google and may not be continued indefinitely.

Suna Kıraç Library provides Google Scholar Metrics as an easy way for Koç University authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications.

Scholar Metrics summarize recent citations to many publications, to help authors as they consider where to publish their new research.
