Scope/Description:

Patient Safety in Surgery is an open access journal that publishes articles on all issues related to safety and quality of patient care in surgery and surgical subspecialties.The journal provides a scientific platform for specialists from all surgical fields and for other healthcare professionals to report discuss debate and critically review all aspects related to errors complications and other safety issues in the management of patients undergoing surgical procedures.Morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing surgical procedures may in large part be preventable. The key to improving the management of adverse events in surgery is understanding their causes. These range from simple individual errors in surgical technique and perioperative decision making to system errors in hospitals and extend as far as to general healthcare issues in politics.An evidencebased approach to quality improvement in surgical care must include the analysis of incidence and pattern of adverse events. This is particularly true for the analysis of procedures that did not result in an adverse event but had strong potential to thus bearing the risk of these cases being neglected or trivialized instead of being reported and reviewed as a true complication.

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.

H-Index

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
