Journal of Dental Research 2020 Journal Impact Factor™ Over 6 For the First Time

Alexandria, Va., USA — The International and American Associations for Dental Research announce that the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) 2-year Journal Impact Factor™ is over 6 for the first time at 6.116, ranking #5 of 91 journals in the “Dentistry, Oral Surgery & Medicine” category, and the JDR 5-year Journal Impact Factor™ is over 7 for the first time at 7.199 score, ranking #3 of 91 journals.

The JDR also ranks #1 of 91 journals in total citations and Eigenfactor, #2 in the new Journal Citation Index and #3 in Article Influence Score. This news comes from the 2021 Journal Citation Reports™ (Clarivate™, 2020).

Full 2021 Journal Citation Reports™ results for the JDR:

  • 2-year Journal Impact Factor: 6.116, ranking #5 of 91 journals
  • 5-year Journal Impact Factor: 7.199, ranking #3 of 91 journals
  • Eigenfactor: 0.01683, ranking #1 of 91 journals
  • Total citations: 26,197, ranking #1 of 91 journals
  • Journal Citation Indicator: 2.39, ranking #2 of 91 journals
  • Article Influence Score: 1.726, ranking #3 of 91 journals

The 2-year Journal Impact Factor™ is defined as citations to the journal in the Journal Citation Reports™ year to items published in the previous two years, divided by the total number of scholarly items, also known as citable items, including articles and reviews published in the journal in the previous two years.

New in 2021 is the Journal Citation Indicator. Developed by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)™ at Clarivate™, this new metric represents the average category-normalized citation impact for papers published in the prior three-year period, providing a single journal-level metric that can be easily interpreted and compared across disciplines. The Journal Citation Indicator will be calculated for all journals in the Web of Science Core Collection – including those that do not have a Journal Impact Factor (JIF)™.

“I am thrilled to see the groundbreaking scores for the 2-year and 5-year Journal Impact Factor™ and to see the JDR continue to rank #1 in Eigenfactor and total citations,” said JDR Editor-in-Chief Nicholas Jakubovics. “For over 100 years the JDR has been a top journal in our field and we owe this achievement to the researchers who submit their best science to the JDR and also to all the current and former Editors, Associate Editors, reviewers and Editorial Board members that ensure the JDR continues to publish science of the highest quality.”
