Average number of citations received by articles and reviews authored by researchers affiliated with an institute or a non-academic hospitals. Citations are counted over a three years period following the publication year. Conference papers are not included.

Two measures are given: the average number of citations received during the period y+1 to y+3 and the average of the sums of the 'impact per paper' (IPP) over this three year period. The IPP measures the ratio of citations in a year (Y) to scholarly papers published in that journal during the three previous years (Y-1, Y-2, Y-3) divided by the number of scholarly papers published in those same years (Y-1, Y-2, Y-3) in the journal.
