OverviewEdit

The SSCI citation database covers some 3,000 of the world's leading academic journals in the social sciences across more than 50 disciplines.[1] It is made available online through the Web of Science service for a fee. The database records which articles are cited by other articles.

CriticismEdit

Philip Altbach has criticised the Social Sciences Citation Index of favouring English-language journals generally and American journals specifically, while greatly underrepresenting journals in non-English languages.[2]
