Journal Rankings help determine the impact and prestige a journal has within its field. Also, rankings allegedly establish a scholar's standing and authority within a field and contribute to tenure promotions.
Probably the best known journal ranking is the Thomson Reuters (formerly ISI) Journal Impact Factor. Due to its cost, the JKM Library does not subscribe to this resource. However, there are many other websites that can help determine a journal's ranking, which can be found below.
This is a ranking system that uses data from Thomson Reuter's Journal Citation Reports but uses it somewhat differently. For more information, see here.
