Hoboken, N.J. -- John Wiley & Sons, Inc., today announced a continued increase in the proportion of its journal titles indexed in the Thomson Reuters 2012 Journal Citation Reports (JCR), with 1,192 (approximately 77%) titles now indexed, up from 1,156 in the 2011 JCR. Wiley titles now account for the largest share of journals in 50 categories.
In the 2012 JCR the number of Wiley journals with a top category rank increased by 19% (4) and the number of Wiley titles indexed in the top ten of their categories also increased by 11% (27). Of publishers with more than 100 journals indexed in the 2012 JCR, Wiley saw the largest proportion of titles (close to 60%) increasing in Impact Factor (IF).
"We are honoured to work with the editors, societies, and publishing teams behind such high quality publications, and it gives us great pleasure to see the portfolio go from strength to strength. All those involved, our colleagues and our partners, should be delighted by the latest JCR results," said Steven Miron, Senior Vice President in Wiley's Global Research business.
One of the largest changes this year is the partnership between Wiley and the American Geophysical Union, whose portfolio of influential geoscience and geophysics titles is responsible for 6% of citations to journals published by Wiley in the 2012
