It just popped up in my RSS feed on the second of July. The official press release from Thomson Reuters is dated July 1st, announcing the new edition of the Journal Citation Reports 2007. There is no further mention of the new journals included or excluded. There is a link to the official promotional website of JCR, which still states:
- Covers more than 7,500 of the world’s most highly cited, peer-reviewed journals in approximately 200 disciplines
- The Science Edition covers over 5,900 leading international science journals from the Thomson Reuters database
- The Social Sciences Edition covers over 1,700 leading international social sciences journals from the Thomson Reuters database
It actually struck me today that the journals included in JCR are not listed at their Master Journal List.
Shall we call it progress that Thomson is confirming what I blogged about some two weeks ago?
