The publications in CDR have still been widely cited in the situation of not applying for the important databases (like PubMed, Scopus, ESCI) and having low exposure. As of October 10, 2020, the calculated impact factor for 2020 has been 1.5, which is expected to exceed 2 by the end of the year. Welcome to check the citation information of articles published in 2018 and 2019.

The Editorial Office is currently working on database application including PubMed, Scopus and ESCI, with the belief of achieving success based on the solid accumulation over the past two years. More researchers will know the journal and read the high-quality articles on the journal after these databases indexing. The first target impact factor of CDR is 5.

Welcome to send your CV to and work together to realize the establishment of an influential academic journal in the field of cancer drug resistance.
