Top list journals of 2022

As from January 2022 until the end of the year, these scientific journals form the basis for KI's so-called top publications list. The list of qualified journals is based on information from the database Medline (PubMed) and is produced by our University Library in the autumn every year – to decide the auto feed of high impact publications on during the comming year.

Inclusion criteria 2022

  • The chart below contains journals with JIF (Journal Impact Factor) or JCf (Journal Citation Factor, i.e. field-normalised citation score) corresponding to the top 5 percent of the journals in the Medline database during the years 2016-2020.
  • JIF limit: 12.479
  • JCf limit: 2.493
  • Please note that journals from other research disciplines have been excluded from the chart, but may still qualify for the top list auto-feed on
