The 2015 Impact Factor for CDSR is 6.103, which describes the ratio of the number of reviews published during 2013 and 2014 (1,888) to the number of citations these reviews received in 2015 (11,522).
Unofficially, the 2015 CRG Impact Factor for PaPaS is 6.208 (72 publications cited 447 times). This means that a review published by PaPaS in 2013 and 2014 was cited, on average, 6.208 times in 2015. This Impact Factor is an equivalent calculation for our group's reviews, this is not an official or genuine Impact Factor provided by Thomson or part of the Journal Citation Report.
