JournalBase: useful tool to compare journals listings

Capture d’écran 2015-10-19 à 11.16.34Developed from the data on the Web of Science (Thomson Reuters), Scopus (Elsevier), the authoritative lists of ERIH (Europe) and HCRES (former AERES – France), JournalBase offers a new service in the Social Sciences and Humanities disciplines, with an inventory of the journals, and a comparison of their listings in national and international databases.

JournalBase provides for each journal a comparative table of its listing in the WOS, Scopus, ERIH and HCRES for the years 2013 à 2015 as well as useful information such as the field of discipline, the journal’s website, the language of publication, the publisher, the country of the publisher and the journal’s status (Open Access or payable).

My Research Dashboard

ResearchDashboardIf you want to find out at a glance how your work is performing, then you might be interested in testing “MyResearchDashboard“, a tool created by Elsevier. It enables you to know how your work is being viewed, cited and shared.

This tool helps you get early indicators of how and where your work has the most impact and with which audiences, within a few weeks after its publication. You can track this impact over time and cross all your publications (Elsevier and non-Elsevier publications) and see the number of views and citations each of them has received.

You can access real-time metrics and also metrics dating back 10 years. You can also monitor how your publications are being shared on Mendeley. You will also gain insight into how your work is being compared to other publications.

My Research Dashboard connects Scopus, ScienceDirect and Mendeley. Scopus is an abstract and citation database that represents 5,000 publishers. ScienceDirect is home to almost 16% of the world’s peer-reviewed content and Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that helps you organize your documents, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research in your field.
