Journals in these categories were ranked according to the "Article Influence Score"--one ranking feature of the Journal Citation Reports ranking system.  The Article Influence determines the average influence of a journal's articles over the first five years after publication.   

Journals in the upper brackets of each category were then alphabetized, so the rank order is not preserved.

Some categories were collated from a couple different areas of the Journal Citation Reports database in order to present a more uniform cluster of titles. 

For the most part, links to journal titles will take you to current content only.  Milner might have access to a deeper archive than might be apparent from these links, as sources for journal content may have changed over time.  If you are looking for material from years earlier than those available, do a title search for your journal in the library catalog.
