Journal Citation Reports 2016 (JCR) Released

The Journal Citation Reports 2016 (JCR), with the Journal Impact Factors of 2015, have been released by Thomson Reuters. You can download the complete list here.

I sorted out some journals related to Remote Sensing, Geography, Hydrology, and Wetlands. You can download my sorted list here. Note that this is only my personal classification. My apologies if some of your preferred journals are not on the list here.

Keep in mind that journal impact factor is just one metrics, so don’t take it too seriously!
