The Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) is a commercial citation index product of Clarivate Analytics. It was originally developed by the Institute for Scientific Information from the Science Citation Index.

Overview

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.

Criticism

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]
