Journal Cost Effectiveness

Journal Cost-Effectiveness

This tool uses ISI data; see JCR and Web of Science for limitations of ISI data. The interface is easy, the data can be exported raw, and it is handy for quick statistics on individual titles as well as sketches of the situation with journals in particular areas. “This website represents our best attempt to compute the price per article and price per citation. Currently we use the ISI data for citations …. The coloration (red for very low value, yellow for low value, and green for good value) is computed by comparing the composite price index to the median for non-profit journals in the same subject.”

Journal Cost Effectiveness was designed and is maintained by the same developers of the EigenFactor.
