OBJECTIVES: Emergency medicine (EM) is a young but rapidly growing field. An evaluation of academic performance and the growing impact of EM journals would help to elucidate the increase in the number of EM scientific studies. The authors used the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database to investigate the scientific achievements of EM journals in the past 10 years. METHODS: This was a literature review study. All data were collected from the JCR database. Journals listed in the EM category from 2000 to 2009 were included...

Physicians often scan a select number of journals to keep up to date with practice evidence for patients with kidney conditions. This raises the question of where relevant studies are published. We performed a bibliometric analysis using 195 renal systematic reviews. Each review used a comprehensive method to identify all primary studies for a focused clinical question relevant to patient care. We compiled all the primary studies included in these reviews, and considered where each study was published. Of the 2779 studies, 1351 (49%) were published in the top 20 journals...

The delineation of renal disease in children dates to the 1880s with descriptions of Henoch's purpura, bladder exstrophy, renal rickets and nephritis. The discipline of pediatric nephrology mainly emerged during the 20th century in response to problems in fluid and electrolyte balance, characterization of the nephrotic syndrome, use of renal biopsy, antibiotic therapy of urinary tract infections, dialysis and transplantation in children, growth problems associated with chronic renal failure, detection and therapy of hypertension, and the creation of both national and international pediatric nephrology societies and a journal now in its 18th year...

Pediatric nephrology, as a discipline, arose from descriptive studies of childhood glomerulonephritis in Europe and the field of pediatric metabolism in the United States. While pediatric scientists before 1950 were concerned with fluid and electrolyte metabolism, regulation of intracellular and extracellular fluid, acid-base homeostasis, and parenteral fluid therapy, the defined field of nephrology developed after the Second World War around six major advances: ACTH and glucocorticoid therapy for nephrotic syndrome; renal biopsy to diagnose glomerular disease; the role of immunologic factors in glomerular injury; the use of dialysis as renal replacement therapy; renal transplantation as the optimal form of therapy in children with end stage renal failure; and recognition of renal disease in the etiology of 80% of cases of childhood hypertension...

Epidemiologic methods have been applied unevenly among medical specialties. Identifying current uses and areas of potential research helps clarify and define the field. Using citation analysis of published data, the patterns of references to and by the American Journal of Epidemiology were examined for 1974-1982; 17,574 citations to and 15,872 citations by that Journal were classified according to the subject category of the referencing or referenced journal. Internal medicine and public health/epidemiology journals accounted for the largest proportion of all citations, followed by journals of immunology, cancer, microbiology, pediatrics, cardiovascular system, virology, tropical medicine, statistics, and obstetrics/gynecology...
