Definition

CiteScore

CiteScore measures the average citations received per document published in a title. CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a range of four years (e.g. 2017-2020) to peer-reviewed documents (articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters) published in the same four calendar years, divided by the number of these documents in these same four years (e.g. 2017– 20).

For example, CiteScore 2020:

A = Citations to articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters published in 2017-2020

B = Sum of articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters published in 2017-2020

2020 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.
