Content: From About Journal Citation Reports: “Journal Citation Reports aggregates the meaningful connections of citations created
by the research community through the delivery of a rich array of publisher-independent data,
metrics and analysis of the world’s most impactful journals included in the Science
Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), Arts & Humanities
Citation Index (AHCI), and the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).”

Journal Impact Factor(from the Glossary under J) : Journal Citation Reports defines Journal Impact Factor as “…all citations to the journal in the current JCR year to items published in the previous
two years, divided by the total number of scholarly items (these comprise articles,
reviews, and proceedings papers) published in the journal in the previous two years.
Though not a strict mathematical average, the Journal Impact Factor provides a functional
approximation of the mean citation rate per citable item. A Journal Impact Factor
of 1.0 means that, on average, the articles published one or two years ago have been
cited one time. A Journal Impact Factor of 2.5 means that, on average, the articles
published one or two years ago have been cited two and a half times. The citing works
may be articles published in the same journal. However, most citing works are from
different journals, proceedings, or books indexed in Web of Science Core Collection.”
