Nous avons publié un nouvel article dans les Annales de l’URPP : « Evolution of the bibliometric indicators of nine pharmaceutical journals from 2011 to 2016« .
Saviez-vous qu’il existe au moins 7 indicateurs bibliométriques de l’impact d’un article? Les facteurs d’impact de six journaux pharmaceutiques ont augmenté dans les dernières années.
CI-joint le résumé de l’étude :
Introduction: Very few studies have analyzed the impact of journals in the field of pharmaceutical practice. Objectives: Describe the evolution of bibliometrics indicators of pharmaceutical journals. Methods: This is a longitudinal descriptive study. Seven bibliometric indicators were identified; Impact factor (IF), EigenFactor, Article Influence, Source Normalized Impact per Paper, Scimago Journal Rank, CiteScore and Impact per Publication. Nine pharmaceutical journals to which North American hospital pharmacists are usually exposed in their clinical practice were selected. Bibliometric indicators variables were extracted from 2011 to 2016. We analysed the evolution of the IF and its correlation to other bibliometric indicators. Results: We observed an increase in the IF of 30.0% for Pharmacol Ther 29.3% for Ann Pharmacother 24.5% for Br J Pharmacol 21.1% for Expert Opin Pharmacother 15.1% for Eur J Pharmacol 10.5% for J Pharm Pharmaco 6.9% for J Clin Pharm The 1.1% for Pharmacotherapy and -16% for J Am Pharm Assoc during the study period. The average coefficient of correlation between the IF and the six other bibliometric indicators is at least greater than 0,897. Conclusions: The IF of eight out of nine pharmaceutical journals increased between 2011 and 2016. The IF is highly correlated with six other bibliometric indicators.
