Abstract

Abstract The Impact Factor is a measure of average citation frequency for articles in a specific scientific journal during a specific period of time. IF takes into account the content, sources, layout and frequency and regularity of publishing. In order to get an impact factor, a journal needs to be first put on the Philadelphia List. In 2001, after the change of the Editor-in-Chief, Polish Gynaecology started the process of trying to get an IF. The analysis of contemporary value of the publication was done on the basis of the SJR indicator and the Scopus database. It has revealed that, despite a decrease in the number of publications per year, the percentage of citations has risen to 20%, not to mention an increase in the number of references and articles published within international cooperation. The quality of article summaries in English is of great importance and offers a chance to increase the number of citations of the articles, available online at Medline and Pubmed free of charge. Evaluation of the SJR indicator of all Polish gynecological journals gives reason to believe that Polish Gynaecology is a highly regarded and valued publication.
