CiteScore is journal evaluation metrics which was launched in December 2016 by Elsevier as an alternative to the generally used JCR impact factors. It is based on the citations recorded in the Scopus database for articles published in the last four years. CiteScore is a part of the “array of metrics” that aim to provide a more nuanced understanding of what impact means for research and journals.
