Do journals published by BioMed Central have Impact Factors and are their citations tracked?
Yes; for any journal to have an Impact Factor, however, it must be tracked by Thomson Scientific (ISI) for three years. Because BioMed Central journals are relatively new, most do not yet have Impact Factors. The list below shows those journals that are already tracked by Thomson Scientific (ISI) and so already have, or will soon have, Impact Factors. Note that in several cases the figures are artificially low, as they are based on a single year of citation data rather than the usual two. Additional BioMed Central journals are currently being considered for tracking by Thomson Scientific (ISI). If the journal you are interested in is not currently tracked, you can recommend it to Thomson Scientific (ISI) for tracking. Two other citation tracking services (Scopus and Google Scholar) both track citations for all BioMed Central journals.
