    • A free and searchable database, Eigenfactor covers the natural and social sciences and "also lists newsprint, PhD theses, popular magazines and more." The Eigenfactor is included in Journal Citation Reports.  It continues to be listed here for use on its own.
    • The website includes an interactive mapping function that shows the relationship of branches of science to each other based on the size of the field and the citations generated by the journals of the field. Rather than the "soft" categories used in Journal Citation Reports, where a journal may be located in one or more categories, Eigenfactor uses a hard category where a journal can only fit in one discipline.
  • SCImago Journal & Country Rank
    • A free source that uses data from Elsevier's SCOPUS database. Includes a "compare" feature that compares journal citation among countries. There is also a "map generator" that shows citation relationships by country.
