The Predatory Reports is a colJournalytics tab and Predatory Reports tablection of possibly predatory journals that you should not use and should not trust in your work. Common violations include that they have little to no peer review or editorial review, that they charge to publish, that they claim to be international with a board from a single country, or other concerns. However, our subscription does not include this list.

Influence Indicators

Scite Journal Index (SJI): “Smart Citations” is a metric for understanding if the paper is disputed or supported in other research. The number apples to the journal for at least 100 cites during the period measured. 1 is supported, while the deeper you do into <1 the more disputed the citations are.

CCI Snapshot: Cabells Classification Index (CCI) is a reflection of influence. This, too, is discipline specific, so there may be more than one CCI for a periodical that crosses disciplinary lines. The larger the colored-in area, the larger the impact according to Cabells.

Altmetric Report: A number from Cabells that reflects a higher profile in social and popular media.
