Cite Score Metrics
Cite Score Measures average Citations Received per document Published in the serial.
Cite Score calculates the average number of citations received in a calendar year by all items published in that journal in the preceding three years. The calendar year to which a serial title’s issues are assigned is determined by their cover dates, and not the dates that the serial issues were made available online.
The method of calculation for Cite Score 2015 is illustrated below.
