JCR Editorial Expression of Concern

At Clarivate, we believe in the importance of maintaining the integrity of the scientific record. We apply rigorous selection criteria for the inclusion of content in our databases. As a responsible bibliometrics provider, we also monitor, survey and curate our data to identify anomalies that lead to distorted metrics and rankings. We have no doubt that distortion of citations is harmful as it creates an inaccurate reflection of the connections between articles and their contribution to the scholarly network.
