Cochrane volunteers translate our reviews from English in to other languages to help us make oral health care evidence more widely accessible.

In November 2017 (Issue 11), Cochrane translators produced two oral health review abstract translations in Japanese, one oral health review abstract translation in Polish, and two oral health review abstract translations in Russian.

The 2016 Impact Factor for the CDSR (overall for all Cochrane groups) is 6.124 (1,881 publications cited 11,520 times), consequently, the CDSR now ranks 14th of the 154 journals in the Medicine, General & Internal category.

Cochrane Oral Health's unofficial individualised impact factor for 2016 is 3.854 (41 publications cited 158 times), and ranks our research very slightly beneath the 5th placed journal (International Journal of Oral Science) in the listed 90 journals under the Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Medicine category. This means that research published by our editorial base in 2014 and 2015 was cited, on average, 3.854 times in 2016.
