Impact factor - JCR 2016


Fator de impacto - JCR 2016

Dear readers,

We have wonderful news to share with you!

Thomson Reuters has recently published the Journal Citation Reports 2016, presenting the Impact Factor (IF) regarding the citations in 2016 as well as the classification of the scientific journals into their categories.

The two-year IF (JCR® 2016) of Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia (RBZ) increased from 0.412 to 0.545 and the five-year IF increased from 0.665 to 0.767.

This IF increase reflected also in the RBZ ranking position in the categories in which it is classified. In the category Agriculture, Dairy and Animal Science, RBZ went from the 48th to the 42nd position (among 58 scientific journals); in the Veterinary Sciences category, RBZ moved from the 106th to the 96th position (among 136 scientific journals).

We highlight that RBZ is the 12th most cited among 58 journals in the category Agriculture, Dairy and Animal Science, and in 2016, it was cited 3321 times.

It is noteworthy to mention that our self-citation is of 9.4%, one of the lowest values among the journals in those cited categories.

Our gratitude to all authors and the editorial board for the collaboration and trust deposited upon RBZ! You are the true responsible for the success of Revista Brasileira de Zootecnia!

RBZ Editor-in-chief.
