Emerald journals return strong CiteScore results

CiteScore metrics provide much greater depth and breadth to the range of data previously available

Bingley, United Kingdom, 6 February 2017 - The new CiteScore metric based on Scopus data has shown that 77% of Emerald’s journals in Scopus’ Business, Management & Accounting category rank in the top half of all its indexed titles. 

According to CiteScore, Emerald is the publisher with the most Business, Management & Accounting titles, with over 16% of the whole sector.

Launched by Elsevier, CiteScore is one of a number of measures that help provide a holistic overview of a Scopus-indexed journal or serial title’s performance in Scopus. CiteScore metrics comprise a variety of indicators, making them part of a basket of metrics that provides a more balanced view of journal or serial quality than one indicator alone would.

CiteScore is a simple way of measuring the citation impact of journals and book serials. It calculates the average number of citations received in a calendar year by all items published in that journal in the preceding three years. CiteScore is drawn from over 20,000 journals in its database, which is nearly twice as many as those that are given an Impact Factor. 

In addition to the CiteScore, Scopus also provides more granular data on journals in a basket of metrics designed to give researchers more detailed information - the basket of data includes the annual CiteScore metrics, a monthly CiteScore Tracker, CiteScore Quartile and CiteScore Percentile. 

Simon Linacre, Head of Business, Management & Economics Journals at Emerald Publishing, said: "The new CiteScore and related metrics provide much greater depth and breadth to the range of data previously available to researchers. 

“Social and applied science authors in particular should benefit from this by gaining a richer understanding of the academic impact of their work."
