and phoniatrics. For instance, in the ISI category of otorhinolaryngology, the journals devoted to otology have generally a higher impact factor than journals in laryngology and a much higher impact factor than a journal devoted specially to phoniatrics. Based on this, the ‘importance’ of phoniatricians is considered to be lower than that of laryngologists and much lower than that of otologists. Consequently, phoniatricians are judged as less ‘scientifically valuable’ than otologists and…

60 Years of Folia – Review and Comparison of Two General Journals in Our Field
TLDR
This issue of Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica marks the end of the 60th volume of the international scientific journal of the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics (IALP).
Editorial 33-4 (LPV)
TLDR
To evaluate the current state of play with LPV, its output is compared with that from Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica (FPL) published by Karger which is in its 60 year of publication as the International Scientific journal of the International Association of Phoniatrics and Logopedics (IALP).
Impact of Excessive Journal Self-Citations: A Case Study on the Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica Journal
  • J. Foo
  • Education
    Sci. Eng. Ethics
  • 2011
TLDR
It is interesting to review the possible alternative bibliographical trend for the journal should the self-cite event has been avoided, the circumstances leading to the decision by the editor to publish such an article and the possible ethical implications or lessons that can be derived from this incident.
Can Otolaryngology Compete with Larger Fields Regarding Impact Factor?
  • R. Labadie, J. Fitzpatrick
  • Medicine
    Otolaryngology--head and neck surgery : official journal of American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
  • 2011
TLDR
The authors sought to investigate the possible relationship between size of specialty field and IF, and found a highly positive correlation with smaller fields (eg, otolaryngology) having lower IFs.
The consequence of stacking by Brazilian journals
  • M. Ruiz
  • Medicine
    Revista brasileira de hematologia e hemoterapia
  • 2013
TLDR
The RBHH represents four medical societies and within the framework of the works that are published in its pages today, it is the second most cited journal thereby demonstrating its acceptance within the Brazilian hematology community.
Bibliometric Analysis of Scientific Contributions in Minimally Invasive General Surgery
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to quantify the research contributions of different countries in minimally invasive surgery and to critically discuss the results under the prism of recent socioeconomic developments.

TLDR
Emergency medicine journals rank low in impact factor summary statistics and growth trends among 31 medical and surgical specialties.
A small field for fertile science: the low visibility of reproductive science in high impact journals
TLDR
Compared to other major scientific disciplines, the field of reproductive biology in general lacks journals with impact factors above 4.0 and primary original research articles on reproduction—irrespective of male or female search terms—do not appear often in high impact journals.
Relationship between an editor in chief's commentary publications and the impact factor of cardiovascular medicine journals
TLDR
A weak but still significant correlation was found between the number of commentaries by the EiC and the Ef of their journal and whether the methodology used to compute the IF and Ef should be modified needs further research.
Impact factor: Misused and overhyped?
TLDR
With the increasing number of journals being published, researchers use the IF to identify journals in which they believe their research is likely to be most recognized, and the number of times that a particular paper is cited reflects the quality of the research work.

TLDR
In the present study, microwebs were found in 9.4% of the patients, who showed much smaller glottic proportion than patients with micronodules only, and vocal nodule location was not related to the presence and/or absence of laryngealmicrowebs.

The Prevalence and Risk Factors for Occupational Voice Disorders in Teachers
TLDR
The prevalence of self-reported symptoms and clinical signs of voice disorders is around 2–3 times more frequent in Polish female teachers than in non-teachers, and lifetime vocal effort, incorrect technique of phonation and psychological predisposition seem to constitute major risk factors for developing occupational voice disorders.

TLDR
In this study, 50 mothers of CLP children aged 1–10 years were examined using the 36-item Short-Form Health Survey and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale to screen for quality of life, anxiety and depression, and Surprisingly, the data obtained indicate no group-specific alterations of these items when compared with normal controls.
Efficacy of Conservative Voice Treatment in Male-to-Female Transsexuals

TLDR
Two groups of patients with unilateral or bilateral paresis of the nervus laryngeus inferior were treated with conventional voice therapy or neuromuscular electrophonatory stimulation (NMEPS) and only the patients treated with NMEPS reached significantly better results in case of soft phonation index after resolution of pareses.
Muscular Tension and Body Posture in Relation to Voice Handicap and Voice Quality in Teachers with Persistent Voice Complaints
TLDR
The results are indicative for the importance of assessment of muscular tension and body posture in the diagnosis of Voice Handicap Index and voice quality in teachers with persistent voice complaints and a history of voice-related absenteeism.
