Answer

To find out which are the leading journals in a field  (i.e., those with the highest impact factors, whose articles are cited most frequently), look in Journal Citation Reports. The impact factor helps you evaluate a journal's relative importance as compared to others in the same field.

In JCR, select the Science or Social Sciences editions and then search for a specific journal or view journals by subject category, publisher or country.
