Elsevier Announces 2012 Journal Impact Factor Highlights
Date:7/15/2013

AMSTERDAM, July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the highlights of its journal Impact Factor performance in 2012. According to the 2012 Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) published by Thomson Reuters, Elsevier saw 53% of its journal Impact Factors increase from 2011 to 2012. Furthermore, 17% of Elsevier journals are in the top 10% of their subject category, well ahead of its major commercial competitors.

Elsevier journals top the rankings in 59 subject categories, up from 57 in 2011. Of Elsevier's 1,600 journals in the JCR, 44% are in the top 25% of their subject category. In 2012, 15 Elsevier journals have risen to the top of their subject category, including Cell, reclaiming the top position in "Biochemistry & Molecular Biology".

"Another year of positive results reinforces my view that we're on the right track as a publisher, but most of the credit should go to the world-class authors, editors and reviewers", said Philippe Terheggen, Managing Director Journals at Elsevier. "When we look at these scores, it's important to keep in mind that while the Impact Factor is an important measure for overall journal influence, it is not to be used for evaluation of individual researchers or articles. We're increasingly looking at additional metrics, including so called Altmetrics, as a measure of influence of journals and authors. Meanwhile, we will continue to invest in enhancing the quality of our content, for example by increased support of peer review, by enriching the online article, and through linking articles to research data sets in external repositories. That's the journey we're on."
