Impact Factor

Tobacco Regulatory Science currently does not have an Impact Factor (IF).

Tobacco Regulatory Science Group is pleased to announce that in 2018 Tobacco Regulatory Science was accepted for indexing in the Emerging Sources Citation Index, a new edition of Web of Science™. Content in this index may be considered by Clarivate Analytics to be accepted in the future in the Science Citation Index Expanded™, the Social Sciences Citation Index®, and the Arts & Humanities Citation Index®. The quality and depth of content Web of Science offers to researchers, authors, publishers, and institutions sets it apart from other research databases. The inclusion of Tobacco Regulatory Science in the Emerging Sources Citation Index demonstrates our dedication to providing the most relevant and influential tobacco regulatory content to our community.

The journal Impact Factor is the average number of times articles from the journal published in the past two years have been cited. The Impact Factor is calculated by dividing the number of citations by the total number of articles published in the two previous years. An Impact Factor of 1.0 means that, on average, the articles published one or two year ago have been cited one time. An Impact Factor of 2.5 means that, on average, the articles published one or two year ago have been cited two and a half times. The citing works may be articles published in the same journal. However, most citing works are from different journals, proceedings, or books indexed by Web of Science.
