Impact Factor Pending for the Journal of Pain Research
Dove Medical Press is pleased to announce that the Journal of Pain Research is on schedule for inclusion in next year’s Journal Citation Reports (JCR).
Tim Hill, Publisher, says, “This is long overdue and we are delighted to be able to say that our first impact factor will be announced mid-2016.”
The JCR provides information about highly-cited, peer-reviewed publications and is the source of the new Journal Impact Factors.
As Thomson Reuters quotes, "Journal Selection takes place throughout the course of a year and its goal is to identify, evaluate and select the most important and influential International and Regional journals for coverage in Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge platform. The following year, these data are then analyzed and published in the JCR release, providing a view of how these journals are integrated, through citation, with the scholarly, multidisciplinary literature."
Dove Medical Press Ltd is a privately held company specializing in the publication of Open Access peer-reviewed journals across the broad spectrum of science, technology and especially medicine.
