OBJECTIVE: To study the aspects of citation of the Chinese Journal of Ophthalmology and the requirement and utilization of literatures by the scientists working in the field of ophthalmology.

METHODS: The citation analysis was used to analyze the references cited in the 926 articles published in the Chinese Journal of Ophthalmology from 2001 to 2004.

RESULTS: The citation rate was 91.79% and there were 8.05 citations per article. Citations from journals and books accounted for 91.97% and 7.85% of all citations, respectively. The Price Index was 35.50% and the self-citation rate was 8.40%. The citations from the high-ranked 17 journals accounted for 54.03% of all citations.

CONCLUSIONS: The articles cited by papers published in the Chinese Journal of Ophthalmology cover a wide variety of journals. Most citations came from the English journals. The half-citing life is relatively longer and the Price Index is relatively low. It indicates that the authors' ability for using the recently published articles should be improved.
