PLoS ONE CiteScore

What is CiteScore?

CiteScore is a new standard that gives a more comprehensive, transparent and current view of a journal’s impact that will help you guide your journal more effectively in the future. CiteScore represents a robust approach for several reasons:
  • Observation Window. Research has found that in slower-moving fields, two years’ worth of data is too short; yet five years is too long to consider in faster-moving fields. Three years is the best compromise for a broad-scope database, such as Scopus, as it incorporates a representative proportion of citations across all disciplines while also reflecting relatively recent data.
  • Comprehensive. CiteScore is essentially the average citations per document that a title receives over a three-year period. This means not only articles and reviews but also letters, notes, editorials, conference papers and other documents are included. As a result, the numerator and the denominator used in the CiteScore calculation are consistent. This approach gives a more complete picture of citation impact and makes manipulating the calculation more difficult.
  • Transparent. The calculation of CiteScore is straightforward with no secret algorithms or hidden details. CiteScore metrics calculate the citations from all documents in year one to all documents published in the prior three years for a title. This offers a more robust and accurate indication of a journal’s impact.

    About

    PLOS ONE welcomes original research submissions from the natural sciences, medical research, engineering, as well as the related social sciences and humanities, including: -Primary research that contributes to the base of scientific knowledge, including interdisciplinary, replication studies, and negative or null results. -Systematic reviews whose methods ensure the comprehensive and unbiased sampling of existing literature. -Submissions describing methods, software, databases, or other tools that meet the journal’s criteria for utility, validation and availability. -Qualitative research that adheres to appropriate study design and reporting guidelines. PLOS One (stylized PLOS ONE, and formerly PLoS ONE) is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by the Public Library of Science (PLOS) since 2006. The journal covers primary research from any discipline within science and medicine. The Public Library of Science began in 2000 with an online petition initiative by Nobel Prize winner Harold Varmus, formerly director of the National Institutes of Health and at that time director of Memorial Sloan?“Kettering Cancer Center; Patrick O. Brown, a biochemist at Stanford University; and Michael Eisen, a computational biologist at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
