University Libraries Announces New Databases

Wednesday, January 17th, 2024

The University Libraries is pleased to announce the addition of three new databases now available to UB faculty, students, and staff.

Cabells Journalytics Medicine and Predatory Reports

Journalytics Medicine is a curated database of quality medical journals that have been evaluated by data specialists using an established set of selection criterion.  Journalytics Cards provide MedSCI ranking, cite index data, Altmetric mentions, and other details relevant to article submission.  A journal’s discipline strength, citation activity, online attention, submission, and peer review details are highlighted for quick journal comparisons.

Predatory Reports identifies potentially fraudulent journals and provides a list of predatory behaviors. Each journal is examined against 70+ indicators, screening for everything from misleading metrics to irregular publication practices.
