About this talk

Journal impact metrics are often discussed, especially when in popular usage they become proxies for complex concepts such as quality or impact. However, they also have many distinct and helpful applications. Each metric may offer a different emphasis based on its underlying data source, method of calculation, or context of use. For this reason, we promote the responsible use of research metrics. CiteScore is a suite of journal impact metrics introduced in 2016 and available at no cost within the Scopus, and CiteScore 2019 will be available with a revised methodology. Join our webinar to learn how employing the CiteScore and other journal impact metrics can support Librarians with: • Developing your portfolio management strategy • Providing insight into which serial titles to subscribe to • Empowering researchers to uncover journals which to submit their work to • Teach students how to employ transparent and easy to understand journal metrics We will discuss the importance of employing several metrics to make better decisions, provide an overview of how CiteScore is calculated and answer all your questions.
