Oñati Socio-Legal Series is in the Q3 of JCR Law journals


Clarivate has launched the June JCR Report, which features Oñati Socio-Legal Series for the first year, and in the 3rd quartile (Q3) of Law journals. It ranks 246th of 403 journals.

For the first time, JCR covers the full breadth of research covered in all the journals in the Web of Science Core Collection, including the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which has not been fully covered in JCR until now.

As Clarivate's Dr Nandita Quaderi states, "the journals covered in AHCI and ESCI have met the same rigorous quality criteria (...) for coverage as the publications covered in the Science Citation Index and the Social Sciences Citation Index. Therefore, AHCI and ESCI – and their content from trustworthy, Web of Science-selected journals – merit complete coverage in the JCR" [Source].

ESCI journals, as is OSLS's case, do not receive a Journal Impact Factor (JIF).

OSLS's JCI (Journal Citation Indicator) is 0.42. This is the average Category Normalized Citation Impact (CNCI) of citable items published by a journal over a recent three-year period. The average JCI in a category is 1.

The report certifies OSLS as a Diamond Open Access journal, with all its citable contents being published in open access. The citable items constitute 91% of OSLS's output.
