ISSM Journals' Citation Impact

Elsevier, publisher of ISSM’s Journals recently announced the release of Impact Factors for various scientific journals published in the “Urology and Nephrology” category. Impact Factor is a ratio of the citations to a journal in the most recent year to a count of articles and reviews published in the journal in the prior two years. In the report, ISSM’s Journal of Sexual Medicine had an Impact Factor of 3.339 in 2017 (up from 2.978 in 2016). The Journal of Sexual Medicine’s Impact Factor rated in the top 25% in the “Urology and Nephrology category.

As Sexual Medicine Reviews (SMR) is in the process of obtaining an Impact Factor, we measure the SMR's citation impact through CiteScore™ metrics. CiteScore™ metrics are a comprehensive, transparent, current, and free set of metrics that measure a journal‘s citation impact. The CiteScores 2017, powered by Scopus, have also been released, and the CiteScore for SMR is 1.89. The CiteScore 2017 measures the average number of citations received in 2017 to documents published in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Psoriasis and ED Are Linked, Study Says

Men with psoriasis are more likely to develop erectile dysfunction (ED), according to a recent meta-analysis in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. 

Reviewers analyzed nine studies that included over 36,000 psoriasis patients in Europe and Asia along with over 1.6 million controls.

The authors reported a statistically significant association between psoriasis and ED risk, but they recommended further research for a better understanding of the mechanisms involved. 

More details on the study are available here.
