ABSTRACT

Objective: Clinical and Experimental Reproductive Medicine (CERM) converted its language to English only beginning with the first issue of 2011. From that point in time, one of the goals of the journal has been to become a truly international journal. This paper aims to identify the position of CERM in its scholarly journal network based on the journal's metrics.

Methods: The journal's metrics, including citations, countries of author affiliation, and countries of citing authors, Hirsch index, and proportion of funded articles, were gathered from Web of Science and analyzed.

Results: The two-year impact factor of 2013 was calculated at 0.971 excluding self-citation, which corresponds to a Journal Citation Reports ranking of 85.9% in the category of obstetrics and gynecology. In 2012, 2013, and 2014, the total citations were 17, 68, and 85, respectively. Authors from nine countries contributed to CERM. Researchers from 25 countries cited CERM in their articles. The Hirsch index was six. Out of 88 original articles, 35 studies received funds (39.8%).

Conclusion: Based on the journal metrics, changing the journal language to English was found to be successful in promoting CERM to international journal status.

Figure 1: Citable and non-citable articles in Clinical and Experimental Reproductive Medicine according to year. a)March to September issues of 2014.

Mentions: The number of citable and non-citable articles per year in CERM is presented in Figure 1. Out of 127 articles, 118 were citable and nine non-citable. The authors' affiliations included nine countries. Among the articles, 109 out of 127 were from Korea. The other countries of the authors were Iran, China, the Unites States, Italy, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Taiwan, and Egypt (Figure 2). The proportion of articles funded out of the total number of original articles is presented in Figure 3. Out of 88 original articles, 35 (39.8%) were funded. The 2013 Journal Impact Factor calculated from Web of Science was 0.971. This corresponds to the 67th ranking out of 85 journals listed in the 2013 Journal Citation Reports Obstetrics and Gynecology category (upper 85.9%). If self-citation is included, it was 1.028. The total citations in the Web of Science increased year by year exponentially. In 2012, 2013, and 2014, the total citations were 17, 68, and 85, respectively (Figure 4).
