BEDOLLA-BARAJAS, Martín  y  MORALES-ROMERO, Jaime. Bibliometric characterization of Revista Alergia México. Rev. alerg. Méx. [online]. 2022, vol.69, n.4, pp.155-163.  Epub 25-Ago-2023. ISSN 2448-9190.


To characterize the scientific production of the Revista Alergia Mexico.


A descriptive study was carried out that took into consideration the bibliometric information of the Revista Alergia México hosted in PubMed (MEDLINE) and Scopus.


The total number of articles published during 1991 to 2021 according to Pubmed was 1,115 (anual mean: 37.2 ± 12.3). Scopus registered 1,541 articles during 1972 to 2021 (annual mean: 30.8 ± 14.9); in both sources, original articles (49 and 78%, respectively) and review articles (21 and 12%, respectively) were the most published document modalities; the most relevant topics included asthma (32%), allergic rhinitis (16%) and drug allergy (9%). Public institutions in Mexico were the institutions with the highest number of published articles. The country with the highest number of published papers was Mexico (54%), followed by Colombia (5%) and Spain (4%). The 2020 citation index according to Scopus was 0.9; an H-index of 15; and an impact factor of 0.150. During the period 2016 - 2020, the annual rejection rate ranged from 7% to 30%.


Promoting the internationalization of the journal, publishing articles in the English language and

achieving the impact factor are among some of the main needs of the Revista Alergia Mexico.
