How to Find Impact Factors
Journal Citation Reports, Science and Social Science This link opens in a new window
Select a JCR edition (Science or Social Science) and year. Journals relevant to AFRE appear in both the Science and Social Science categories. Social Science: Economics and Social Science: Environmental Studies Science: Agricultural Economics and Policy
Select a search option (view journals by subject, search for a specific journal, or view all journals) to find if the journal you're looking for has an impact factor.
ISI does not calculate impact factors for all journals, only a select list. Because impact factors mean little on their own, it's best to select the 'view journals by subject' option. Sort results by impact factor so you can see where the journal you're interested in fits in.
Scopus This link opens in a new window
Provides SJR and SNIP (alternative measures of journal impact). It includes more journals than ISI so can be used for journals not included in ISI.
Select the Sources tab.
Select Economics, Econometrics and Finance from the Subject areas drop down menu.
