What is SCIE and JIF vs. JCI
- Clarivate analytics announced the integration of SCI and SCIE to SCIE from Jan. 3 2020. That is, all science and technology journals in the Web of Science Core Collection are classified as SCIE.
SCIE (Science Citation Index Expanded), SSCI (Social Science Citation Index), and AHCI (Arts &Humanties Citation Index)
- JIF (Rank by Journal Impact Factor) vs. JCI (Rank by Journal Citation Indicator)
On May 2020, Clarivate Analytics announced that it had created a new metric for comparing the relative citation performance of journals across different disciplines. It calls this metric, the Journal Citation Indicator (JCI).
The JCI has several benefits when compared against the standard Journal Impact Factor (JIF): It is based on a journal’s citation performance across three full years of citation data rather than a single year’s snapshot of a journal’s performance across the previous two years. In addition, Clarivate promises to provide the JCI score to all journals in its Core Collection, even those journals that do not currently receive a JIF score.
The JCI is easy to interpret. Average performance is set to 1.0, so a journal that receives a JCI score of 2.5 performed two-and-a-half times better than average, while a journal with a score of 0.5 performed only half as well.
