This report selects about 15,000 high-level journals representative of the region, discipline and industry as source journals from 63,000 or more active sci-tech academic journals worldwide. This novel system comprehensively covers all sci-tech fields and reflects the development of emerging and cross-disciplinary disciplines, following the general outline of the Classification and Code Disciplines of the People’s Republic of China, with reference to the Chinese Library Classification and Disciplinary Classification for Degree Granting and Talent Training, etc. Among them, 1426 Chinese sci-tech journals are included, and the average WJCI index is 1.185.
