Journal Citation Reports - Clarivate Analytics Introduce New Open Access Data in JCR.

Date of news item: 27 April 2020

Clarivate Analytics have announced the addition of open access data to Journal Citation Reports profile pages to increase transparency around open access models in scholarly publishing. The new data show each journal’s articles by access model. This provides the research community with transparent, publisher-neutral information about the relative contribution of articles published free to read and re-use under Creative Commons licenses (‘gold open access’) to a journal’s overall volume of content and citations. The new feature is in beta until the launch of the 2020 Journal Citation Reports in June (JCR data 2019).

For the approximately 5,200 hybrid journals in Journal Citation Reports, readers will now quickly and easily be able to identify:

  • the number of papers published via the traditional subscription model, and
  • those published via Creative Commons licenses
