Le Infezioni in Medicina is indexed and/or abstracted in:

  • PubMed
  • PubMed Central
  • EMBASE/Excerpta Medica
  • Scopus
  • SCImago
  • Google Scholar
  • Portico
  • Crossref

Several databases, besides basic statistics like number of articles published per year, number of citations to the journal each year, and number of references made each year, provide different metrics that measure the scientific influence and prestige of a journal.

The Journal Impact Factor was the first metric created for scholarly journals. Eugene Garfield first conceived of the idea of an impact factor in 1955. It is used to determine the impact a particular journal has in a given field of research and also to determine in which journal an author might wish to publish. It is reported each year in the Journal Citation Report https://clarivate.com/webofsciencegroup/solutions/journal-citation-reports/

The Journal Impact Factor was the only metric available for many years. But once the Internet made gathering statistics easier, other metrics were created. The Eigen factor was the next popular metric, followed by SIR and SNIP. The last, together with many other metrics, are provided by the following databases

  • Scopus: SJR, IPP, SNIP, CiteScore
  • SCImago: SJR, h Index, country rankings

SJR - SCImago Journal Rank

This metric doesn't consider all citations of equal weight; the prestige of the citing journal is taken into account.


CiteScore is based on the number of citations received in four years to 5 peer-reviewed document types (articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers, and book chapters) by a journal in the same four years, divided by the number peer-reviewed documents indexed in Scopus and published in those same four years.

IPP - Impact per Publication

Also known as RIP (raw impact per publication), the IPP is used to calculate SNIP. IPP is number of current-year citations to papers from the previous 3 years, divided by the total number of papers in those 3 previous years.

SNIP - Source-Normalized Impact per Paper

SNIP weights citations based on the number of citations in a field. If there are fewer total citations in a research field, then citations are worth more in that field.

H index

The index is based on the distribution of citations received by a given journal publication. In other words, a journal with an index of h has published h papers each of which has been cited in other papers at least h times. Thus, the h-index reflects both the number of publications and the number of citations per publication. The index is designed to improve upon simpler measures such as the total number of citations or publications. The index works properly only for comparing scientists working in the same field; citation conventions differ widely among different fields.

The journal Le Infezioni in Medicina is indexed in the main databases since many years and all journal metrics are constantly growing over time as reported in the following table.

Highlighted in yellow is reported the Cites per Document (4yrs) that measures the scientific impact of an average article published in the journal, it is computed using a formula similar to that of journal impact factor (Clarivate).
