Jee is No. 1 for Citations

By Anonymous

The Journal of Engineering Education, ASEE's research journal, moved up this year in rankings of the internationally recognized Thomson ISI Science Citation Index and the Social Science Citation Index. JEE placed first out of 105 journals in the highly competitive category "Education and Educational Research" in the Social Sciences Citation Index and placed first in the category "Education, Scientific Disciplines" in the Science Citation Index. The ratings are based on the Impact Factor, a measure of the degree to which a journal's articles are cited. "We are obviously very pleased with our performance this year. It is a testament to the hard work and wise counsel provided by many individuals who have helped advance the quality of the journal in recent years," remarked Jack Lohmann, editor of JEE. Sarah Rajala, ASEE president, said,"We are very proud of JEE's contributions to advance the field of engineering education research. These top ratings reaffirm the impact its articles are having internationally on the educational preparation of the next generation of engineers."

JEE's impact factor ratings places it in the top 5 percent of the 1,865 social science journals and in the top 15 percent of the 6,417 science journals.
