The 2014 Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports® (JCR), a quantitative ranking, evaluation and comparison of journals, rated ISA Transactions nearly 40 percent higher than the previous year. The JCR rankings measure the Impact Factor, the frequency with which the average journal article has been cited up to two years after publication. Since 1975, the Impact Factor has been relied upon as an indicator of professional journal relevance and importance.

In the 2014 JCR rankings, ISA Transactions is listed in two categories: “Engineering, Multi-disciplinary” and “Instrument & Instrumentation.” In the “Engineering, Multi-Disciplinary” category, ISA Transactions ranks 11th out of 87 journals. In the “Instruments & Instrumentation” category, ISA Transactions ranks 9th out of 57 journals. The 2014 rankings in both categories reveal significant year-over-year improvement.

“This year’s JCR rankings provide further validation that ISA is a global source for knowledge and science that advance the automation profession,” says Patrick Gouhin, ISA Executive Director & CEO. “It’s clear that every year, more automation professionals throughout the world are relying on ISA Transactions for its scholarly value and quality, and for the credibility and usefulness of its peer-reviewed content.

“I want to take this opportunity to recognize Dr. Ahmad Rad, Editor-in-Chief, and the volunteer editors and editorial board members of ISA Transactions as well as the multitude of contributing authors and reviewers who invest so much time, energy and creativity to craft such a well-regarded professional journal.”

ISA Transactions covers advances and state-of-the-art developments in the science and engineering of measurement and automation. The bimonthly journal has increased in popularity over the last several years, with hundreds of industrial practitioners and applied researchers holding subscriptions.

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, distributes ISA Transactions on behalf of ISA to an international audience via an electronic platform called ScienceDirect. Incorporating a full-text scientific database of articles and book chapters from more than 2,500 peer-reviewed journals and more than 11,000 books, ScienceDirect provides access to more than 10 million users worldwide.

Measurement topics covered in ISA Transactions include sensors, perception systems, analyzers, signal processing, filtering, data compression, data rectification, fault detection, inferential measurement, soft sensors and hardware interfacing; and the techniques that support these technologies, such as artificial intelligence, fuzzy logic, communication systems and process analysis.

Automation topics frequently referenced in the journal include statistical and deterministic strategies for discrete event and continuous process control, modeling and simulation, event triggers, scheduling and sequencing, system reliability, quality, maintenance, management and loss prevention; and the equipment, techniques, and best practices that support them such as optimization, learning systems, strategy development, security, and human interfacing and training.

A recognized authority for evaluating journals since 1975, the JCR supports an annual systematic review of the world’s leading journals in 232 disciplines, using a combination of metrics and millions of cited journal data points that provide context in assessing journals’ scholarly value.

The JCR are relied upon by:

  • Librarians to evaluate and document the value of their library research investments.
  • Publishers to determine journals’ influence in the marketplace, review editorial policies, monitor competitors, and identify new opportunities.
  • Authors and editors to identify the most appropriate, influential journals in which to publish.
  • Researchers to discover where to find the current reading list in their respective fields.
  • Information analysts and bibliometricians to track bibliometric and citation trends and patterns.
