Scope/Description:

In September 1951, the first issue of the West Indian Medical Journal was published. Its immediate predecessor was the Jamaica Medical Review which came into being through the hard work and dedication of a group of prominent local surgeons and physicians. Their stated primary aim was "the encouragement of the medical profession in the British West Indies to record individual experiences and researches considered of value no less to their colleagues in the Caribbean and elsewhere than to themselves for subsequent reference".

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.
