Title: The classification of biomedical journals by research level
Source: SCIENTOMETRICS, 60 (2): 145-157 2004
A new method of classification of biomedical research journals by research
level (RL) into clinical or basic, or somewhere in between, is described
that updates the system developed by CHI Research Inc. nearly 30 years ago.
It is based on counting articles that have one of about 100 "clinical" title
words, or one of a similar number of "basic" title words, or both. It allows
over 3000 journals in the Science Citation Index (or other databases) to be
classified rapidly and transparently, for changes in their research level
with time, and for many individual papers in "mixed" journals to be
categorised as clinical or basic.
