2017 Bioethics journals h5 / h5-median index

I suspect I could have had this easier, but be that as it may, I searched for bioethics/health care ethics/ medical ethics journals on google scholar to see how they fare in terms of citations over the last five years.


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

Usual CoI blurb applies. I co-edit two of the journals in this list. List up-dated July 2017. Any mistakes are my own, please alert me if you discover discrepancies between what I am reporting and what you're able to find on google scholar.
