Journal Impact Factors – New tool for ranking nursing journals

The ISI Journal Citation Reports are the source of impact factors for journals. However, there have long been concerns about how suitable these are for disciplines such as nursing and midwifery. 

It is therefore interesting to look at research done in Australia. A new tool (JET – Journal Evaluation Tool) was designed to evaluate nursing and midwifery journals. Using this they have produced a ranking of some 52 titles.  

 You can see the rankings they produced in an article published in the July edition of  Nurse Education Today. Details of some of their earlier research (and earlier rankings) are also available on the website of the Centre for Health Initiatives, University of  Wollogong.
