Robert Finger. The ranking of academic journals is often used for the evaluation of the impact and quality of journals. While such rankings are often restricted to the impact factor as indicated from the ISI Web of Knowledge Journal Citations Report, other journal metrics such as provided by Scopus can complement this assessment i) by using a different database and ii) the use of additional indicators.
Below the rankings for the 17 journals in the category ‘Agricultural Economics & Policy’ (as defined by the ISI Web of Knowledge Journal Citations Report) from both sources (https://journalmetrics.scopus.com/ and https://jcr.incites.thomsonreuters.com) are listed. Note that the usefulness of such rankings that are only based on citation metrics is very limited and alternatives such as survey-based rankings have been proposed also for the field of agricultural economics (see e.g. https://www.uni-hohenheim.de/i410a/publikationsranking/).
