InCites is built on a single dataset source from the Web of Science Core Collection, aggregated by the Research Analytics Integrated Metrics System, and optimized in the InCites Dataset.
Integration across the Research Analytics platform means the indicators from Essential Science IndicatorsSM, Journal Citation Reports®, Institution Profiles come together in one dataset.
Institutional Registry address unification system supplies organization data to InCites improving accuracy and ease of use.
Current InCites Dataset
- Web of Science™ Core Collection content indexed through the week of May 31, 2021
- 71 unique new institutions and address unification updates up to May 28, 2021, were added to the InCites dataset. See the complete list of organizations.

Institutional Profiles provide quantitative data for a large number of performance indicators, including:
- number of staff and students
- teaching and research reputation
- productivity, as measured by publications
- impact, as measured by citations
Data for Institutional Profiles come from three primary sources: institutional data collection, reputation surveys and bibliographic analysis. You can also review a list of participating institutions.
Country/region aggregations are now available as Regions in the InCites Explorer. Download the list of countries and regions, and their associated regions.
