Journal Citation Reports from Thomson Reuters
Following the release of the 2011 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) from Thomson Reuters, a resource used to measure the influence and research impact of journals, Maney Publishing is pleased to announce impressive results across its health sciences list.
The results show considerable improvements for a number of health science titles, such as Journal of Spinal Cord Medicine, Nutritional Neuroscience, and Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology (relaunched in 2012 as Pathogens and Global Health).
Citation results show an average increase of 14% across the health science collection and the total citations of Maney’s health titles have also increased, indicating the value of recently published content as well as the retrodigitised archive. This is a greatly appreciated recognition of Maney authors and editors.
