The  2013 edition of Journal Citation Reports®  (JCR) is now available via Web of Knowledge.

JCR measures the impact factor of journals, the 2013 edition contains the data for 2012. The impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The JCR also lists journals and their impact factors and ranking in the context of their specific field(s).

Linking to Ovid via SFX

We are experiencing some problems linking to Ovid (via SFX) which means you may be asked to log in to Shibboleth even when onsite. Ovid are working on the issue, hopefully it will be resolved shortly.

If you have any problems accessing journals please email: journals@sgul.ac.uk

Note for NHS staff: if you’re having problems accessing journals onsite via Shibboleth,  you can check the  NHS A-Z List to see if you can access the journals via your Athens account.
