Journal-level metrics

The metrics below are produced by third parties as ways to quantify the impact this journal has on the research community.

Please note that these metrics should always be considered in the context of how they are calculated. As a signatory of the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA) we also emphasise that none of these journal-level metrics should be used to judge the impact of an individual article or author, or their research outputs.

For full details of how these metrics are calculated, please see our guide to journal-level metrics.

Please note: The article counts in this table account for all published items, including book reviews, editorials, and other “non-research” material. The numbers have been automatically calculated for all Cambridge journals in order to provide standard data about our publishing activities; they should not be taken as a proxy measure for a journal’s quality and selectivity. Authors and readers are advised to look through the contents of recent volumes in order to best understand the journal’s typical scale and use of distinct article types.
