Total Cites
Total Cites is the number of total citations to articles in the journal for the current JCR year.
Impact Factor
The journal impact factor measures how frequently an average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. It helps evaluate a journalís relative importance, compared to others in the same field.
The impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of citations in the current year to articles published in the two previous years by the total number of articles published in the two previous years.
Immediacy Index
The journal Immediacy Index is a measure of how quickly the average article in a journal is cited. The Immediacy Index tells you how often articles published in a journal are cited within the year they are published.
The Immediacy Index is calculated by dividing the number of citations to articles published in a given year by the number of articles published in that year.
2003 Articles
The number of articles published in a journal in a particular year or years. Editorials, letters, news items, and meeting abstracts are not included in article counts because they are not generally cited.
Cited Half-Life
The cited half-life is the number of publication years from the current year which account for 50% of current citations received. This figure helps you to evaluate the age of the majority of cited articles published in a journal. Each journalís cited half-life is shown in the Journal Summary List page. Only those journals cited 100 or more times have a cited half-life.
