Submit your Journal to get IARC-JCRR Indexing and Impact Factor

Impact Factor calculated by IARC on the basis of Journal Citation Reference (JCR) Report.



IARC-JCRR is an international accreditation and research council organization that provides access to quality controlled Open Access Journals and proceedings. IARC-JCRR is world's largest growing Professional organization for indexing of scholarly peer reviewed journals & proceedings, which boost the worldwide visibility and accessibility of your scientific content.

Journal Citation Reference Reports (JCRR) offers a systematic, scientific, objective means to critically evaluate the world's leading scientific journals, with quantifiable, statistical information based on citation data. By compiling articles/papers cited references, JCRR helps to measure research influence and impact at the journal and category levels, shows the relationship between citing and cited scientific journals.
JCRR allows you to access and explore the underlying data that informs JCRR metrics from article keywords to citation thresholds. This expanded capability lets you conduct analysis and comparisons of citation relationships across scientific journals and categories over time. You can even localize your analysis to understand publishing practices within your organization.

Impact Factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to articles published in journals, books, patent document, thesis, project reports, newspapers, conference/ seminar proceedings, documents published in internet, notes and any other approved document. It is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a given period of time. The annual JCRR impact factor is a ratio between citations, reference and recent citable items published. The impact factor for a journal is calculated on the basis of a three-year period and can be considered to be the average number of times published papers are cited and its articles have been referenced in other articles up-to two years after publication. Also IARC calculated based on governance and commercial quality, scientific quality, editorial quality, international presence and Infrastructure, Stability, Standards, Contextual citation. In general high impact factor journals are recognized as the most influential as compared to the other journals published in the same field. The IF is used to compare different journals within a certain field. The International Accreditation and Research Council indexes many Arts, Agriculture, Science, Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Commerce, Management, Economics Sociology and Social Science journals. Those journals are indexed in Journal Citation Reference Reports (JCRR).

Journal indexing and evaluation is free for journals. Publisher can submit the journal from Journal submission a Journal form to include the journal in IARC-JCRR indexing.

Journal Impact Factor Evaluation is free of cost. For more detail, please click on Journal Selection criteria and Publisher Guidelines.


  • 1. Librarians can support, evaluate and document the value of their library research investments.
  • 2. Publishers can determine journals influence in the marketplace, to review editorial policies and strategic direction, monitor competitors, and identify new opportunities.
  • 3. Authors and editors can identify the most appropriate, influential journals in which to publish.
  • 4. Researchers can discover where to find the current reading list in their respective fields.
  • 5. Information analysts and bibliometricians can track bibliometric and citation trends and patterns.

There are many advantages of journal citation impact factors. The most common one involves market research for publishers and others. But, primarily, IARC provides librarians, scientists and researchers with a tool for the management of library journal collections. In market research, the impact factor provides quantitative evidence for editors and publishers for positioning their journals in relation to the competition especially others in the same subject category, in a vertical rather than a horizontal or interdisciplinary comparison. As a tool for management of library journal collections, the impact factor supplies the library administrator with information about journals already in the collection and journals under consideration for acquisition. These data must also be combined with cost and circulation data to make rational decisions about purchases of journals.
Perhaps the most important and recent use of impact factor is in the process of academic evaluation. The impact factor can be used to provide a gross approximation of the prestige of journals in which individuals have been published. This is best done in consideration with other considerations such as peer review, productivity, and subject specialty citation rates. The impact factor can be useful in all of these applications, provided the data are used sensibly. It is important to note that qualitative methods can be used in evaluating journals such as interviews, questionnaires, schedules etc. In general, there is good agreement on the relative value of journals in the appropriate categories. However, the IARC makes possible the realization that many journals do not fit easily into established categories.
