I have just found out Journal Scholar Metrics, a new bibliometric tool developed by Spanish researchers that seeks to measure the performance of Art, Humanities, and Social Science journals by counting the number of bibliographic citations their articles have received according to Google Scholar. In addition, Journal Scholar Metrics is free and very easy to use.


Journal Scholar Metrics uses two bibliometric indicators computed for classifying scientific journals: the H5-index (h-index computed from the citations to documents published in the last five years) and the H5-median (median of the citation counts in the documents that contribute to the H5-index).

The characteristics of Journal Scholar Metrics allows several segmentation criteria, such as the area, the scope, continent, country, and any combination of them.

According to Journal Scholar Metrics, the journal which I co-founded with my colleagues 9 years ago, the Journal of Industrial Engineering and Management (JIEM), it is indexed as the 8th (eighth) Spanish journal with the highest impact  (among the existing 867 ), and the 1st (first) in the field Business, Economics & Management. A complete success!
