Impact Factor 2019

The 2019 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 7.890

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 2019 Journal Impact Factor for the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) increased from 7.755 to 7.890
  • The CDSR is ranked 10 of 165 in the Medicine, General & Internal category
  • The 5-Year Impact Factor increased from 7.949 to 7.974

The 2019 CRG Impact Factor for the Epilepsy Group is 3.771 (35 publications cited 132 times). This therefore means that a review published by the Epilepsy Group in 2017 and 2018 was cited, on average, 3.771 times in 2019.
