Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia included in Thomson-Reuters Database©

 

 

The Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia joined the literature search platform Thomson-Reuters - © Web of Knowledge, previously known by © ISI (Information Sciences Institute). This database is currently the largest source of information on what is published in the fields of science, arts and humanities. Accessed electronically around the world, it stands as the main parameter to evaluate authors and scientific publications. Thomson-Reuters - © Web of Knowledge is a virtual platform that provides fast and easier management of the desired information, either in content, form or size to professionals in academic and scientific areas. As for the analytical content, the performance of data based on citations can be assessed, assisting researchers in the analysis and evaluation of scientific and academic influence.

Impact factor - Through calculation based on the number of times a given publication (and authors) is cited in other publications (and authors), the platform generates an index known as the impact factor. The more a given publication is cited, the higher its impact factor. The impact factor attaches importance to the publication and its authors. From now on, the Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia will participate in this process, and next year (2012) our first impact factor should be released.

The indexing of our journal in Medline and its recent merger with Thomson-Reuters Platform - © Web of Knowledge will give the Revista Brasileira de Anestesiologia international visibility and greater prestige among the publications of our area of expertise, both domestic and foreign, that reached this stage.

The Board of the Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology, keeping one of your appointments with members of the SBA -quality continuing education - puts its main publication in the level of relevant publications and reliable as a means of disseminating scientific production and results, and of forming concepts in the field of Anesthesiology.
