This page provides information about journal impact metrics using data from Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar, and alternatives. Prior to publishing, you may wish to select a journal based on its journal impact factor, or its prestige and influence within particular disciplines.
Although the WSU Libraries does not have a subscription to Scopus, Scopus data is used in a number of freely-available journal evaluation resources. Note- see the first link to get journal metrics without a Scopus subscription.
Google Scholar Metrics provide an easy way for authors to quickly gauge the visibility and influence of recent articles in scholarly publications. Scholar Metrics summarize recent citations to many publications, to help authors as they consider where to publish their new research.
