There are a number of impact rankings given to journals to attempt to measure how impactful, or great the reach of a journal is. Higher impact journals are generally able to publish the most rigorous, quality research articles, so looking at journal rankings might help you determine what journals to follow, search for sources for your research, and publish in.
Journal rankings are also problematic, and several different formulas to attempt to measure impact have been developed. The different formulas each put different emphasis on different things. Three of the measures for ranking journals are:
Follow these steps to find ranked lists of journals:
Journal Impact Factor and Eigenfactor:
SCImago Journal and Country Reports:
AND link words by AND to search for all words in the same resource
OR link words by OR to search for one word or another (instead of both/all words)
NOT to eliminate results with a certain term
“Quotations” – add quotations to a group of two or more words to search for the exact phrase
