LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 25 July, 2011 – The IEEE Computer Society publishes seven magazines and journals that are among the Top 10 in their respective categories, according to the latest Journal Citation Reports.
IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI) was the top-ranked journal in the computer science artificial intelligence category in the 2010 JCRs, continuing its long history of being among the most highly-ranked technical journals. The journal also ranked fourth in the electrical engineering category in the 2010 reports. In addition, TPAMI saw its impact factor increase to 5.027 in the 2010 reports, up from 4.378 in 2009.
In the computer science software engineering category, IEEE Micro ranked sixth, IEEE Internet Computing seventh, and IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering ninth. Two IEEE Computer Society publications--IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and IEEE Pervasive Computing—were among the Top 10 in the telecommunications category. The publications ranked fourth and seventh, respectively, in the 2010 JCRs’ telecommunications category.
Two Computer Society publications were also among the Top 10 in the computer science hardware and architecture category. IEEE Micro ranked fourth, and Computer, the Society’s flagship magazine, ranked 10th.
The Journal Citation Reports metrics have come to define journal performance across disciplines and institutions worldwide. JCR presents quantitative data that provide an objective way to evaluate the world’s leading journals and their impact and influence in the global research community.
JCR covers more than 9,100 of the world’s most highly cited, peer-reviewed journals from 78 nations. By compiling articles’ cited references, JCR helps to measure research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, and shows the relationship between citing and cited journals.
