Scope The scope of the Journal of Clinical Microbiology® (JCM) includes the laboratory diagnosis of human and animal infections, the role of the laboratory in managing infectious diseases (including antimicrobial and diagnostic test stewardship), and the role of the laboratory in elucidating the epidemiology of infections. The three principal attributes required of papers published in JCM are significance, relevance to the practice of clinical microbiology, and quality science. The significance of a paper depends on novelty, timeliness, and potential for impact on patient outcomes or clinical microbiology laboratory practice. These standards are applied to all papers, regardless of the specific technology studied.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
