*A 5-year impact factor is the average number of times articles from a journal published in the past five years have been cited in the JCR year. It is calculated by taking the number of citations in the JCR year to articles published in the preceding 5 years and dividing by the number of articles published in the previous 5 years.
** The Immediacy Index is a measure of how topical and urgent work published in a scientific journal is. It is measured by dividing the number of citations made to articles in a journal in a given year by the number of citeable articles published in the journal for the same year.
