Greetings from Dr. Yilei Mao and the editorial office of HBSN.
We are glad to present the 2017 Annual Report of HBSN here. In June 2017, HBSN was indexed by SCIE, which was a big step for us. The total citation number of HBSN in 2017 was 648 and our predicted impact factor of 2017 is 2.5-2.7, which will be formally released in June 2018. The total retrieval times of HBSN in PubMed reached to 193,418 in 2017. Also, HBSN keeps its international feature with board members, authors, reviewers and readers from all around the world.
We give our sincere thanks to all our editorial board members, guest editors, authors, reviewers and readers. We hope the new year bring you health, success and luck!
