Journal CiteScores

What is CiteScore?

The CiteScore journal impact metric represents the average citations received in a specific year to articles published in the previous three years. The CiteScore 2018 edition is therefore based on citations in 2018 to articles published in 2015, 2016 and 2017. CiteScore was launched in December 2016, covers journal titles in Elsevier’s Scopus database and is released once a year.
