Abstract: Objective To provide reference for the development of Journal of Beijing University of TCM (JBUTCM) based on quantitative analysis of all the articles in the journals in SCIE database, which cited papers published in JBUTCM. Methods Through search on Web of Science Core Collection: Cited Reference Search, articles in the journals in SCIE database that cited papers in JBUTCM were analyzed in this paper. Results From 1995 to 2018, a total number of 556 articles were cited in SCIE database journals and the accumulative citation frequency was 879, both of which exhibited parabolic trends. The number of citing articles was 773 with annual increases. The first author’s institutional affiliation of the cited articles was mainly Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. Among all the papers published with research funding, those funded by the national funding were the majority. There were ten articles with cited frequency higher than five, five of which were published in the Science & Technology Theme column, four in the Theoretical Studies column, and the other one was in the Traditional Chinese Medicine Experimental Research column. The journals that carried the papers that cited articles in JBUTCM ranked at the middle level in the world. The citing articles were mostly in such areas as integrative and complementary medicine, pharmacology and pharmacy, and chemistry. Conclusion The percentage of cited articles accounted for only 8.7% of the total number of articles published in JBUTCM. While the journal exerted relatively large influence at home, its international influence was comparatively small. The articles in columns Science & Technology Theme and Theoretical Studies attracted more attention than those in other columns, and therefore, the two columns should be preserved and strengthened. In addition, JBUTCM should publish more and better research papers related to integrative and complementary medicine, pharmacology and pharmacy, and chemistry to improve its academic influence.
