PCD Article Metrics

Preventing Chronic Disease (PCD) is committed to excellence in scholarly publishing and collects a variety of metrics that show trends in chronic disease prevention research and practice and help to inform PCD’s future direction. PCD annually reports its rank among public health journals through its impact factor and in Google Scholar and Scopus. In addition, PCD collects metrics on scholarly citations, webpage views and downloads, media attention, and social media visibility and engagement. These metrics, which are regularly updated on our website, provide us with the most accurate and complete picture of the journal’s impact and reach with our readers, scholars and practitioners in the field, the news media, and the general public.

The “Most Viewed” metric indicates the number of times a PCD article has been viewed during a certain period. This metric is the sum of web page views and views of the downloadable PDF version of the article.
