ComSoc Excels in Citation Rankings

Message from The IEEE Communications Society banner

Each year, the Journal Citation Reports® (JCR) from Clarivate Analytics examines the influence and impact of scholarly research journals. JCR reveals the relationship between citing and cited journals, offering a systematic, objective means to evaluate the world's leading journals. The 2016 JCR study, released in June 2017, reveals that IEEE Communications Society publications continue to maintain high rankings in telecommunications.
