Registration and Signing into Journal Citation Reports

Your institution's subscription to Journal Citation Reports may give you access using IP authentication or Single Sign-on namely Shibboleth or Open Athens. This means you do not have to sign in using an email address and password. However, to take full advantage of all features of InCites Benchmarking & Analytics and JCR, including personalization such as customizing indicators, saving favourites, and roaming access, you need to register and then sign in.

To sign in, click Sign In from the menu bar at the top of any page in Journal Citation Reports. Type your email address and password, and then click Sign In.


You can sign into Journal Citation Reports with your Clarivate account credentials, as long as you have a valid Journal Citation Reports subscription. We recommend you sign in with your institutional email address and, when signing in for the first time, from your institution’s entitled IP range.
