Journal Evaluation

Journalytics Medicine & Predatory Reports - published by Cabells, this database of over 7,000 verified medical journals and 17,000 predatory journals includes Altmetric Attention Scores and Smart Citations, among other details.

Please note that while coverage is constantly growing, it is not comprehensive. For example, if a journal is not included in Journalytics Medicine, that doesn't mean it isn't high-quality; it may be that Cabells considers it outside of the scope of this database.
