2018 Impact Factors
It is journal ranking season again. We at JSCM know that impact factors, cite scores, and the like are poor proxies of a journal’s quality let alone the impact of any one article. However, we also know that authors need this information.
Therefore we are pleased to inform you that JSCM’s ISI impact factor for 2018 is 7.125 (2017 6.105) in the just released Thomson-Reuters’ 2018 Impact Factors. JSCM was 11th out of 217 management journals and second in operations and supply chain management. JSCM has been first or second among operations and supply chain management journals for the last 9 years. This along with the recently released CiteScore metrics where JSCM was in the top 1% of all Business and Management journals, is continued evidence of the impact of research published in the Journal as well as the wider discipline.
These results are a reflection of the quality of research being done in the community as well as JSCM’s exceptional AEs, ERB members and reviewers. Articles in JSCM have this impact because AE’s and reviewers work with authors to develop their initial submissions into the best papers possible.
