Google Scholar metrics 2013

Earlier this month Google released the 2013 edition of Google Scholar metrics. Top 20 journals (and non-journals) in Mathematical Analysis category:

  1. Nonlinear Analysis: Theory, Methods & Applications
  2. Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications
  3. arXiv Analysis of PDEs (math.AP)
  4. Journal of Functional Analysis
  5. Fixed Point Theory and Applications
  6. arXiv Functional Analysis (math.FA)
  7. SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis
  8. Journal of Differential Equations
  9. Abstract and Applied Analysis
  10. Journal of Inequalities and Applications
  11. Annales de l’Institut Henri Poincare (C) Non Linear Analysis
  12. arXiv Classical Analysis and ODEs (math.CA)
  13. Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations
  14. Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems
  15. arXiv Operator Algebras (math.OA)
  16. Indiana University Mathematics Journal
  17. Journal de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées
  18. Communications in Partial Differential Equations
  19. arXiv Complex Variables (math.CV)
  20. ESAIM: Control, Optimisation and Calculus of Variations

That’s one weird (and Elsevier-infested) list.

The ratings are based on the total number of citations, not citations per article. The more bloated a journal is, the better it looks. Maintaining an industry of Ctrl-C Ctrl-V generalizations helps too. JMAA scores high on both counts.
