Impact Scores

Impact scores are an important measure of scientific reach and impact. They are an indicator of how many times a paper has been cited in other scientific literature, normalized for subject, year and document type (original research paper, editorial, commentary, etc.). The score takes into account the expected citation rate for other similar documents published in the same year and related to the same subject area. The benchmark impact score is 1.0. In 2016, the average impact score for papers authored by Lerner researchers was 1.62. Since 2012, the citation impact of Lerner publications has increased by more than 25%.
