- Cabell's Directory of Publishing Opportunities / Cabell's Metrix: Cabells Classification Index / Cabells Altmetric Report
- Scimago Journal and Country Rank includes journals and country scientific indicators from Scopus. These indicators can be used to assess and analyze scientific domains. Data back to 1996 (Scopus).
- Eigenfactor shows ratings of the total importance of a scientific journal
EF -- Eigenfactor score measures the importance of a journal to the scientific community, by considering the origin of the incoming citations, and is thought to reflect how frequently an average researcher would access content from that journal
AI -- Article Influence score measures the average influence of articles in the journal, and is therefore comparable to the ISI impact factor. <<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eigenfactor>>
- Scopus covers journals in science, social sciences, humanities and medical fields. To determine the SJR of a journal: Scopus > JOURNAL ANALYSER > enter a journal name> see its SJR, SNIP, CITATION .Note, we do not have access to Scopus
III. Altmetric Attention Score (ALT)
- Altmetric Explorer - to monitor the online activity surrounding academic research. Browse by author, group, or department for your own institution, benchmark against peer organizations, report on the outcomes of outreach activity, and integrate the insights the data provides into evaluation and review processes.
Example - John smith: his total mentions, output with attention, outputs tracked, mentioned by social media /news /patents..., his top journals, top affiliations, top subject areas and more...
