Injury Prevention was successfully launched in March 1995 and has become one of the leading international journals in this field. The journal gradually broadened its initial focus on child and adolescent injuries to include the prevention of injuries in all age groups. It has also expanded its scope to include all types of unintentional injuries, as well as occupational and intentional (violence-related) injuries. It has been indexed by the National Library of Medicine since its second year and is also included in Index Medicus and Embase . Its Impact Factor for 2004 was 1.6 ranking in the top half of all public health journals. Unlike many scientific journals, Injury Prevention is more than a collection of original articles, brief reports or methodological issues.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Injury Prevention

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
