What are journal-level metrics? Why track at this level?
Journal-level metrics measure the impact, reach, or prestige of a journal. Journal-level metrics are designed to measure the aggregate impact of publication as a whole and should not be used as proxy metrics for authors who publish in a particular journal.
That your research is published in a Q1 or A* journal means it is high quality, has been approved by peer review, and has provided a significant contribution to the subject area
Examples of journal metrics
Let us look at Scimago Journal Ranking more closely
Business research publication citations are aggregated mainly in Scopus
Google Scholar records citation data and metrics at the article, author, and journal level. The primary journal-level metric that Google Scholar reports is the h5-index (a variation on the h-index using publications from the last five years only). Google Scholar Metrics ranks top publications by h5-index within selected language and field.
What is Journal Citation Reports (JCR)?
Journal Citation Reports™ (JCR) provides you with the transparent, publisher-neutral data and statistics you need to make confident decisions in today’s evolving scholarly publishing landscape, whether you’re submitting your first manuscript or managing a portfolio of thousands of publications.
Quickly understand a journal’s role within and influence upon the global research community by exploring a rich array of citation metrics, including the Journal Impact Factor™ (JIF), alongside descriptive data about a journal’s open access content and contributing authors. [Source]
