【目的】分析《中华医学杂志英文版》(Chinese Medical Journal, CMJ)与国外三大医学期刊《新英格兰医学杂志》《柳叶刀》《美国医学会杂志》通讯类文章的差异,为优化国内医学期刊通讯类栏目提供参考。【方法】利用Web of Science数据库和《期刊引证报告》,比较2015—2016年CMJ与国外三大医学期刊通讯类文章的载文情况,分析2017年排名前10位高被引文章的特点。【结果】CMJ通讯类文章刊载量、比例、被引频次和引用率均明显偏低;同时,对学科研究热点追踪程度低,从而导致被关注程度较低。【结论】国内医学期刊对通讯类文章重视程度不高,所发表的通讯类文章影响力较低。应重视通讯类栏目建设,及时把握相关学科领域的研究前沿和社会热点,刊发高影响力通讯类文章。
[Purposes] This study aims to analyze the differences of correspondence/letters among Chinese Medical Journal (CMJ) and New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), The Lancet, and Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), and provide references for optimizing the construction of correspondence/letters. [Methods] All correspondence/letters published in the CMJ, NEJM, JAMA and The Lancet from 2015 to 2016 were searched and analyzed based on Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports. The characteristics of the top 10 articles of correspondence/letters ranked by the citation frequency in 2017 were explored. [Findings] Compared with the correspondence/letters in NEJM, JAMA, and The Lancet, the quantity, proportion, and citation frequencies of those in CMJ are very low. The correspondence/letters in CMJ could not track the hot spots of academic researches timely, resulting in a low degree of attention. [Conclusions] The domestic medical journals such as CMJ have paid less attention to correspondence/letters, and published low-impact articles. Domestic journals should pay attention to the construction of correspondence/letters, timely grasp the research frontiers and hot spots, and publish high-impact articles.
