Impact Factors for scientific journals can be found in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database, which is available from the Research Medical Library.  You can view all journals at once, search for a specific journal title or choose a group of journals by subject area. Sort journal lists by impact factor by selecting Journal Impact Factor above your search results. 

Please note that Journal Impact Factors are released annually around the month of July. Not every journal will have an Impact Factor. Journals must be indexed in the Science Citation Index or Social Science Citation Index and must have several years of publications before they can be included in the Impact Factor report.

Additional Impact Factors for social sciences (psychology, social work, education, etc.) can be found in the JCR database through the TMC Library.  Follow these instructions for remote to access electronic resources at TMC (scroll down to the TMC Library section).
