How do I find the impact information for journals?
To find the impact factor of a specific journal title, you will want to search the Journal Citation Reports (JCR).
Stanford currently subscribes to both the Science Edition and the Social Sciences Edition.
The Thomson/ISI documentation states that the Journal Citation Reports are generally available in the summer following the end of the year.
The analysis is based on each journal's publication date. It can take several months after the end of the year to receive and index all issues dated for that year. So, for example, in late April 2012, the latest results are for 2010.
