2010 Journal Citation Reports

Posted by Megan on June 30, 2011

ISI’s 2010 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 2010 were:

1. American Political Science Review

2. Annual Review of Political Science

3. American Journal of Political Science

4. New Left Review

5. Global Environmental Politics

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

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

1. International Organization

2. International Security

3. World Politics

4. Foreign Affairs

5. Common Market Law Review

*International Organization was again cited most frequently overall.

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