Coverage1950-ongoing
Scope Cell Press has been chosen by The American Society of Human Genetics to publish its premier monthly journal from January 2008. The American Journal of Human Genetics (AJHG) is an exciting new venture for Cell Press as its first society-owned journal. The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) and Cell Press anticipate tremendous synergies between AJHG content and that of the 12 Cell Press titles, including Cell, Molecular Cell, Current Biology, and Immunity. Since its inception in 1948, The American Journal of Human Genetics has provided a record of research and review relating to heredity in humans, and to the application of genetic principles in medicine and public policy, as well as in related areas of molecular and cell biology.

SJR

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.
