Abstract: Objective. This paper investigated the possibility of SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) indicator as an alternative to the Journal Impact Factor (JIF) in the field of dentistry. Method. The SJR and JIF scores and ranking order of 88 dental journals were downloaded from the relevant websites. Pearson and Spearman correlation coefficients were calculated to test hypotheses for association between the two journal quality metrics. Result. A very strong positive correlation was found between the scores and ranking order based on the SJR and JIF of selected journals. Hence, academics and researchers in dentistry can use the SJR indicator as an alternative to JIF.
