2016 Google Scholar Metrics for Bioethics journals

I'm afraid the list isn't quite complete as for some reason at least one well-known quality publication, the Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal, just doesn't pop up. It's also the case that some journals that were covered in the past have disappeared from google's radar, even though they continue to exist. This info from google's media release might explain the inclusion and exclusion of particular journals: 'Publications with fewer than 100 articles in 2011-2015, or publications that received no citations over these years are not included.'

Quite possibly the below table will be displayed in odd ways on your screen, mea culpa. 

Usual CoI blurb applies. I co-edit two of the journals in this list. List up-dated July 2016.

*h5-index is the h-index for articles published in the last 5 complete years. It is the largest number h such that h articles published in 2010-2014 have at least h citations each

**h5-median for a publication is the median number of citations for the articles that make up its h5-index
