The 2018 Journal Citation Report (JCR) has been released by Clarivate Analytics, and we are delighted to announce that Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) Journal Impact Factor is now 7.755.
This is an increase on the 2017 Journal Impact Factor, which was 6.754.
The CDSR Journal Impact Factor is calculated by taking the total number of citations in a given year to all Cochrane Reviews published in the past 2 years and dividing that number by the total number of Reviews published in the past 2 years. It is a useful metric for measuring the strength of a journal by how often its publications are cited in scholarly articles.
Some highlights of the CDSR 2018 Journal Impact Factor include:
- The CDSR is ranked 11 of the 160 journals in the Medicine, General & Internal category
- The CDSR received 67,607 cites in the 2018 Journal Impact Factor period, compared with 62,332 in 2017
- The 5-Year Journal Impact Factor is 7.949 compared with 7.669 in 2017
