The journal impact factor is a measure of citation frequency that reflects the average number of citations to articles published in science and social science journals. Impact factors are calculated annually for those journals that are indexed in Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports. The impact factor of a journal in a given year is the average number of citations a paper published in that journal received during the two previous years. The impact factor is often used to rank the relative importance and scientific caliber of a journal within its field.
Our 2011 Impact Factor is a significant achievement for the journal, and demonstrates the increased recognition of Current Oncology in the field, and the improved relevance and quality of our articles. Thank you to our team of Editors and Section Editors, Reviewers and Authors for their valuable contribution to the journal. We look forward to continued success in 2012 as the journal continues to strengthen and grow!
