This guide is designed to help you start your research in biology and related biological sciences.

Journal Citation Reports (JCR)

 Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters Scientific) analyzes journal citation patterns to determine impact factors. The Journal Citation Reports (JCR) for Sciences  and Social Sciences journals compile these data into ranked lists of journals. These values are used to measure the importance of individual journals relative to other titles in their field.

The UC San Diego Library's online subscription to the JCR covers 2007 forward. The Library also holds annual print/microfiche reports, with data from 1998 - 2007 / 2008.
