2020 Journal Citation Report Released

The new 2020 Journal Citation Report (JCR) was released on June 29 by Clarivate Analytics, providing the 2019 Impact Factor for journals.  The Impact Factor 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. 

The JCR also ranks journals by subjects, enabling us to view journal impact within a specific subject category, such as Oncology.  Shown here are the top 10 journals in Oncology out of the 244 listed in this category, along with the number of MSK-affiliated publications for each journal in 2019. 

  1. CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians (2)
  2. Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology (6)
  3. Nature Reviews Cancer (5)
  4. Lancet Oncology (25)
  5. Journal of Clinical Oncology (60)
  6. Cancer Discovery (20)
  7. Cancer Cell (18)
