Definition

CiteScore

CiteScore measures the average citations received per document published in a title. CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a given year to documents published in three previous calendar years, divided by the number of documents in these three previous years.

For example, CiteScore 2015:

A = Citations received in 2015 for the documents published in 2012, 2013 and 2014

B = Sum of documents published in the title in 2012, 2013 or 2014 (all document types are included except Articles in Press)

2015 CiteScore = A/B

A CiteScore is available for most active serial titles on Scopus ― peer-reviewed journals, book series, conference proceedings and trade journals.

A serial that has a CiteScore Percentile of 96% is ranked according to CiteScore as high or higher than 96% of titles in that category. A title will receive a CiteScore Percentile for each subject area in which it’s indexed in Scopus.
