SAGE - Journals Impact Factor and Ranking Results


2013 Impact Factor and Ranking Results

*From the 2013 Journal Citation Reports® (Thomson Reuters, 2014)

SAGE is pleased to announce a strong performance across its journals portfolio in the 2013 Journal Citation Reports®(JCR) (Thomson Reuters, 2014).

SAGE continues to experience consistent growth in its coverage in the reports, with 470 JCR-indexed journals. This illustrates a 55% increase over the past five years - a 47% increase in the Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) and an 85% increase in the Science Citation Index (SCI), with SCI having significantly increased as a result of the acquisition of the Royal Society of Medicine's 28 journals in 2012. SAGE now has over 200 journals in the top 30% of the JCR, with the publisher being marked out as market leader by number of ranked titles in 7 categories including Sociology, Interdisciplinary Social Sciences, Urban Studies, Criminology & Penology, Special Education and Applied Psychology.

SAGE is committed to developing the breadth, quality and impact of our journals, and we extend our gratitude to our authors, editors and societies for their continued contributions.
