Alexandria, Va., USA – Today, the International and American Associations for Dental Research announced that the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) ranks #1 with a two-year Journal Impact Factor of 4.139 in the “Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Medicine” category. This news comes from the 2015 Release of Journal Citation Reports® with “Source: 2014 Web of Science™ Data”.
Journal Impact Factors are a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The impact factor helps to evaluate a journal’s relative importance, especially when compared with others in the same field.
“I am pleased that the JDR has advanced to #1 in our field,” said JDR Editor William Giannobile. “This news comes on the heels of the JDR’s updated look and the launch of an updated subtitle: the journal for dental, oral and craniofacial research, which emphasizes the broad scope of the Journal. This is an exciting time for the JDR and I am thankful to the scientists who continue to submit their research to the JDR for publication.”
