I have been working in the areas of educational research, sociology / communications / cultural studies, and the social sciences for some time now, and while I prefer to use databases such as ProQuest, EBSCO, Sage, and Informaworld for my research, I recently learned how to access and use the rather important Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) and look up Journal Citation Reports (JCR) for the Social Sciences (by subject, such as Education & Educational Research or Communication).
Yes, this does require access to the ISI Web of Knowledge database via Thomson Reuters, and while I have access to this through my university teaching work, I was never able to locate SSCI and JCR buried within it before. Interesting how just knowing a bit more about how to access information can change our entire approach to it.
One thought on “How to Access Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) & Journal Citation Reports (JCR)”
i want to know about journals of ISI
