2019 Journal Citation Reports Released

On June 20, Clarivate Analytics released the 2019 edition of the Journal Citation Reports (JCR), providing the 2018 journal impact factors (IF). The IF is based on the ratio of a journal’s citations in a given year to the journal’s total number of citable items from the previous two years. And, this information is always of interest to our author community!

The JCR also ranks journals by subjects, providing a useful tool for viewing journal impact within a specific subject category, such as Oncology.  Shown here are the top 10 journals in Oncology out of the 229 listed in this category, along with the number of MSK-affiliated publications for each journal in 2018.

  1. CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians (2)
  2. Nature Reviews Cancer (5)
  3. Lancet Oncology (26)
  4. Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology (8)
  5. Journal of Clinical Oncology (89)
  6. Cancer Discovery (19)
  7. Cancer Cell (26)
  8. JAMA Oncology (42)
  9. Annals of Oncology (31)
  10. Journal of Thoracic Oncology  (16)
