Google Scholar: Metrics 2014

Each year Google Scholar releases a series of metrics reports on publications that are popular amongst researchers. Journal ranking are based on how often a journal is cited. It’s a good guide for identifying resources that faculty and students can browse and stay on top of current hot topics.

In the table below the journals highlighted in orange are the ones Bank Street has access to for the 2014-2015 year through a subscription database, e.g., EBSCOhost, ProQuest, and smaller one title or small collection databases such as Sage. Education titles are nested under Social Sciences.

If you are thinking about starting your IMP next semester, a very good way to prepare is to browse popular journals online. Please note that many journals have a 12 or 18 month delay. It’s always a good idea to check coverage through Find a Journal. If you’d like to find out more on Google Scholar Metrics, read our previous post on this topic.
