Check out the CJHP's excellent SCImago Journal & Country Ranking and other exciting indicators!

By: Amanda Iannaccio

When the Strategy Towards Sustainability was launched in June, 2019, members were assured the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP) would be accountable to them and that CSHP would report on the plans made possible by the financial investment. CSHP CEO, Jody Ciufo, provided a transparent report on several indicators at CSHP's recent Fall Board Meetings marking the progress made to-date. 

Undoubtedly, one of the more impressive indicators provided insight on the Canadian Journal of Hospital Pharmacy (CJHP) rankings. The CSHP National Survey results showed an overwhelming number of members expressed their appreciation for the CJHP, viewing it as a particularly valuable resource. In addition, a third-party indicator, SCImago Journal & Country Rank, reveals an encouraging trend of an increase in citations of the Journal, especially since 2012.
