Citation Rankings: PRIO Journals Still Doing Well


6 July 2011

​​​Both the Journal of Peace Research and Security Dialogue have again performed well in the newly published Journal Citation Reports for 2010 from ISI Thompson.

Security Dialogue moved up from last year to an all-time-high 9th place on the international relations list, with an impact factor of 1.6. Journal of Peace Research has (expectedly) moved down from last year’s sensational 3rd place to a very decent 12th place out of the 73 journals included. On the political science list, JPR is now no 21 out of 139 journals. (Security Dialogue is not on the political science list.)

The impact factor is a calculation of the average number of citations to articles published in a journal in the previous two years by all journals included in the ISI Web of Science.
