The 2019 Journal Citation Report (JCR) has just been released by Clarivate Analytics, and we are delighted to announce that Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) Journal Impact Factor is now 7.890.
This is an increase on the 2018 Journal Impact Factor, which was 7.755.
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 2019 Journal Impact Factor include:
- The CDSR is ranked 10 of the 165 journals in the Medicine, General & Internal category
- The CDSR received 67,763 cites in the 2019 Journal Impact Factor period, compared with 67,607 in 2018
- The 5-Year Journal Impact Factor is 7.974 compared with 7.949 in 2018
