Cochrane's 2016 Impact Factor announced: 6.124

Cochrane Oral Health is delighted to announce Cochrane's official impact factor (IF) for 2016. 

The annual IF is an international measure of the impact research journals have in their respective field, and is the ratio of citations in a single year to total number of citable publications from each journal in the preceding 2 years (e.g. citations in 2016 resulting from publications in 2014 and 2015). 

All Cochrane Review Groups (CRG) publications are assessed singularly under the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) within the Medicine, General & Internal category. The 2016 Impact Factor for the CDSR has increased to 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.

More information on the CDSR's 2016 IF can be found here.

We thank our author teams for their contribution towards this achievement.
