Quartile Comparisons enable users to compare various quartile ranks from metrics for chosen journals within a given subject category. Users can see how each journal ranks within a given quartile, compared with other journals of their choosing, so long as each is categorized within the same subject. The ability to select multiple quartile metrics simultaneously allows for a comprehensive view of how each journal ranks within metrics for a given year.
The following example surveys three journals categorized within Food Science & Technology and quartile rankings for each of the available metrics.
|Journal||JIF Quartile||JIF-JSC Quartile||5-Year IF Quartile||Immediacy Index Quartile||Eigenfactor Quartile||Article Influence Score|
|Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition||Q1||Q1||Q1||Q1||Q1||Q1|
The Quartile Comparisons in view above allow users to see the strengths of journals compared to others in the same subject category. Both Food Chemistry and Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition have high quartile rankings across the chosen metrics, while Food Biotechnology is in the bottom half of quartile rankings for each metric.
