Journal Citation Reports: A New Primer
"To underscore the simplicity and strength of the JIF and other metrics associated with the JCR, Clarivate Analytics has prepared a primer in which these elements are clearly explained and illustrated. From the exact calculation of the JIF, to the editorial procedures that handle instances in which a journal changes its title, to dealing with misguided efforts to artificially influence JIF or misinterpret its significance – the primer provides clear, factual information to enhance the JCR’s utility."
