Garnering data from the Local Journal Utilization Report (LJUR) produced by Thomson Reuters (who extrapolates the data based on citations in the Web of Science database), we can see which journals are most often used by UI authors and which journals most often cite UI authors. Keep in mind that this data is confined by the limits of the universe of journals covered by Web of Science.
Cumulative data from the most recent three years (2008-2010) indicates the journals that most frequently cite UI authors (thus showing where UI researchers are having the most impact). The top 12 titles are:
|Journal Title||Total cites (2008-2010)|
|JOURNAL OF BIOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY||3181|
|JOURNAL OF GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH||2724|
|PHYSICAL REVIEW D||1898|
|PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES||1830|
|JOURNAL OF IMMUNOLOGY||1774|
|JOURNAL OF NEUROSCIENCE||1410|
|JOURNAL OF VIROLOGY||1315|
|PHYSICS OF PLASMAS||1178|
|INVESTIGATIVE OPHTHALMOLOGY & VISUAL SCIENCE||1169|
Of note is PLOS ONE, which is an open access journal. In 2010 (the most recent available), PLOS ONE jumps to the top of the list with 1236 cites.
Data from the same three year period also shows which journals UI authors most often cite in their published articles (thus showing which journals have the most impact on UI authors). The top ten are:
|JOURNAL OF BIOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY|
|PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES|
|JOURNAL OF GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH|
|NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE|
|JOURNAL OF IMMUNOLOGY|
|JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION|
|JOURNAL OF VIROLOGY|
|JOURNAL OF NEUROSCIENCE|
