Web of science journal ranking (JCR)

Every year, Clarivate releases the JCR – Web of Science Journals ranking. Researchers can check the list of WOS journals based on their rank from this link (all subjects are covered). In this post, we will be ranking the top 20 Web of Science journals based on Web of Science JCR 2022-2023.

JCR provides ranking metrics such as journal impact factor, journal citations, and journal quartile. The last JCR was released on 30th June 2022. A list of impact factors is being circulated on ResearchGate since 28 June 2023. However, Clarivate is likely to declare JCR 2023 on 6th July 2023.

According to the Official SourcesStarting from the 2023 JCR release, Journal citations will be expanded to all Web of Science Core Collection journals. It means, all the journals under Web of Science (SSCI, SCIE, AHCI, ESCI) will get journal ranking.
