Of the 299 journals, 48 were cited 10,000 or more times during the period. This ranking of the top 20 by citation impact (citations per paper) should be recognised as distinctly different from the impact factor rankings that are presented in the Journal Citation Reports of Thomson Reuters each year. The impact factor is calculated as citations in Year 3 to a journal’s contents in Years 1 and 2, divided by the number of so-called citable items (regular articles and reviews) in Years 1 and 2. Thus, the above ranking reveals longer-term impact.
