Answer

The Journal Citation Reports resource allows users to determine the Journal Impact Factors for over 7,500 scholarly and technical journals in the sciences and social sciences.

The Journal Citation Reports resouce is available from the library web page via the Article Database tab and then clicking on the letter "J" and then scrolling down to the title Journal Citation Reports.

In addition, here is a direct link: http://elibrary.wayne.edu/record=e1000224~S47

On the Journal Citation Report main page, select the desired JCR edition (Science vs. Social Science, and year). Then choose whether to browse journals in a given subject area, or search for a specific journal by title or ISSN, and click "SUBMIT".
