JCO’s Impact Factor, Annual Citations, Eigenfactor Score Increase in 2010

Sep 07, 2011

JCO has confirmed once again its position as publisher of the most important clinical oncology research, with higher scores recorded in key measures of a journal’s impact on scientific literature.

As reported by Thomson Reuters in its 2010 Journal Citation Reports®:
  • JCO’s impact factor has increased, for the sixth year in a row, to 18.970, ranking it fourth among 184 oncology journals surveyed.
  • Total 2010 citations in scientific literature exceeded 114,000, ranking JCO second among oncology journals.
  • JCO’s Eigenfactor* score—a measure of the Journal’s total influence on the research community—is the 17th highest among all 8,005 Scientific, Technical, and Medical (STM) journals included in the Reports.
*The Eigenfactor method considers the past five years’ Thomson Reuters journal-to-journal citation network, excluding self-citations, so that highly cited journals affect the score more than less-cited journals.
