Journal the Citation Indicator

New indicator incorporated into the new JCR 2021 platform to measure all journals included in the JCR.

From 2021, JCR incorporates the journals of the Web of Science - Core Collection:

  • Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A & HCI)
  • Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)

Since these journals, although not in the JCR, will not have an Impact Factor, they have developed a new metric for the journals included in the traditional collections: Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) and the new indices incorporated into the JCR (A & HCI) and (ESCI).


It takes into account the impact of standardized citations by category (CNCI) of articles and reviews published in the previous three years. 


  • In 2020 the Journal the Citation Indicator will take into account journals that published articles and reviews on the Web of Science in 2017. 2018 and 2019 and will analyze all citations received by these papers between 2017 and 2020.
