When using InCites the first time your Web of Science (WoS) or your Journal Citation Reports (JCR) account needs to be synchronised with InCites.
- Sign out of the Web of Science (important step)
- Clear browser cache and cookies
- Access InCites directly – without signing in to the Web of Science – by accessing InCites via JCR or via InCites directly .
Once registered in InCites you will be able to access InCites via the product link tab in the Web of Science or the Journal Citation Reports.
When using InCites for evaluation purposes be cautious as the quantitative indicators are meant to support qualitative, expert assessment and should not be used in isolation (see: The Leiden Manifesto for research metrics ).
The InCItes handbook, discussing the available indicators, and how they are calculated, is downloadable in PDF format.
