Find Journal Metrics in Cite Score

You can find journal metrics in Scopus using CiteScore.  There are a few different ways to find journal metrics.  You can browse by subject area such as paleontology. 


This will pull up a list of top journals in that area of study. You can view their "CiteScore" and their percentile in the columns to the right of the source title.  This can help you identify high-impact journals to target for publication. 


Back on the main search page, you can also search by specific journal title. Select "Title" from the drop-down menu and enter the journal title in the search bar. Then click "Find sources."


Make sure to select the correct journal from the results list. Click the title to learn more about the journal and its metrics. 



On the "Source Details" page, in addition to learning about the journals metrics and publication details, you can also view the journal articles and set document alerts. 



Towards the middle of the "Source Details" page, you'll be provided the journal's CiteScore and information on the how it was calculated. 



You can also see where this source ranks in multiple subject areas. 


If you click the "CiteScore Rank & Trend" tab you can view more information on where this journal ranks in this field and others.  You can also identify additional high-impact journals to target for publication.
