Journals Ranked by Impact / Highlighted Journals

(from SCI-BYTES: What's New in Research)


SCI-BYTES (archive from 2008-2011) was a weekly summary of what's new in research. In almost every other issue, there was a section on "Journals Ranked by Impact." This information is obtained from the ISI Journal Citation Reports and the ISI Journal Performance Indicators. The list below is an alphabetical listing, by subject, of the "Journals Ranked by Impact" articles which have appeared in SCI-BYTES from July 2000 to May 2011. As of June 2011, the "Journals Ranked by Impact" feature was changed into "Highlighted Journals." Under this new version, less information is provided. Subjects in the sciences and social sciences are covered; subjects in the humanities are not covered. This page is maintained for the benefit of the University of Delaware community to provide quick access to this summary information.

SCI-BYTES went into hiatus at the end of 2011, but began publishing again in 2013 in a somewhat different format. SCI-BYTES is part of ScienceWatch, an online newsletter from Thomson Reuters which tracks trends and performance in basic research. "Highlighted Journals" are still included in the new version, but are not being added to the table (below).

The University of Delaware Library also provides online access to the complete version of the ISI Journal Citation Reports beginning with the 1997 edition.
