2009 Journal Citation Reports

Posted by Megan on July 14, 2010

ISI’s 2009 Social Sciences Journal Citation Reports are now available.

Among other subjects, rankings for journals published in the fields of Political Science and International Relations are included in the reports.

Based on ISI’s formulas, the Political Science journals with the highest impact factor in 2009 were:

1. Political Analysis

2. American Political Science Review

3. Annual Review of Political Science

*American Political Science Review was again cited most frequently overall.

American Political Science Review was again cited most frequently overall.

In International Affairs, the publications with the highest impact factor were:

1. International Security

2. Foreign Affairs

3. Journal of Peace Research

*International Organization was cited most frequently overall.

International Organization was cited most frequently overall.

I wrote more about journal rankings last month—always a controversial topic!
