dc.description.abstractGenetic and dysmorphology sciences form a multidisciplinary field that produces a wide range of scientific journals. The aim of this study was to perform a scientometric analysis of genetic science journals in Journal Citation Reports-Science Citation Index. Methodology: we study the three areas dedicated to genetic sciences (Genetics & Heredity, Develpmental Biology and Toxicology) in the 2007 JCR-SCI edition. Bibliometric indicators used are: journals, articles, citations, impact factor (IF), immediacy index, half life and journals with the greatest IF in each speciality. We also perform a special analysis about publications of ECEMC working group in JCR-SCI. Results: in the area of Genetics & Heredity we found a total of 132 journals, 16,059 articles, 675,463 citations and an average IF of 2,595, the greatest IF belonging to Nat Genet (25,556) and Nat Rev Genet (22,399). The area of Develpmental Biology contains 37 journals, 3,749 articles, 199.213 citations and an average IF of 2,688, the greatest IF belonging to Annu Rev Cell Dev Bio (23,545) and Gene Dev (114,795). The area of Toxicology contains 73 journals, 7,874 articles, 193,395 citations and an average IF of 1,942, the greatest IF belonging to Annu Rev Pharmacol (21,696) and Crit Rev Toxicol (5,145). ECEMC working group has 111 articles in JCR published in the last 10 years, mainly in the area of Genetics & Heredity and in journals with IF 2 . Conclusions: we found out a broad representation of journals in the field of genetic and dysmorphology from the 6,426 journals included in the 2007 JCR-SCI edition. Bibliometric characteristics differ in accordance to nature of the three areas. The contribution of ECEMC working group is important in number and quality of publications in this database. Due to significant limitations observed in the IF, we suggest conducting its analysis from a multidimensional bibliometric perspective, and always within its contextual research area.es_ES
