Alexandria, Va., USA – Today, the International and American Associations for Dental Research announced the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) holds its highest 2-Year Impact Factor in the “Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Medicine” category at 4.755 and ranks #2 of 90 journals in that same category. At 1.529, the Journal also ranks #1 in Article Influence. This news comes from the just released 2016 Journal Citation Reports® (Thomson Reuters, 2017). The Impact Factor is 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.
