8. Do BioMed Central journals have Impact Factors and are they citation tracked?


Yes; for any journal to have an Impact Factor, however, it must be tracked by Thomson Reuters (ISI) for three years. Although many BioMed Central journals are tracked by Thomson Reuters, others are still relatively new. Thomson Reuters (ISI) is currently considering additional BioMed Central journals for tracking.

The SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is also a free alternative journal citation-metric based on citation information from Scopus.
