The Web of Science group also produce additional resources for more in depth bibliometric analysis through the InCites platform, including InCites, Journal Citation Reports (JCR) and Essential Science Indicators.

For guidance on using and interpreting the various metrics, you may find it useful to consult the Using InCites Responsibly guide, produced jointly by UCL and Imperial. For more information on using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) data, see this video from Clarivate.
