Abstract：To analyze the present state of academic periodicals on public health and preventive medicine in China, 73 academic periodicals in the area of preventive medicine and public health were selected from China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) and Wanfang Data Knowledge Platform. The major sources of data come from the periodicals, CNKI, China Academic Periodicals Web, China Citation Database, China Academic Periodicals Analysis Platform, and Chinese Academic Journals Comprehensive Citation Report 2008 (Beijing: Science Publisher). The 1980s is a period that saw the fastest growth in the number of periodicals, with growth rate over 200%. 43.8% of the editorial offices are located in the North China, 27.4% in Beijing. Most periodicals are published bimonthly (49.3%) while 4 are published semimonthly or once every ten days (5.47%). 23% of the periodicals are sponsored by Chinese Preventive Medicine Association (CPMA). Most of them are of good quality in printing and other features. 24.3% of them have their own websites, 30.1% uses public websites, and 38.4% do not use websites at all. The average time between the submission and the publication of a paper is 178 days, which falls short of the requirement for national scientific periodicals. Electronic service is common and effective. 69% of the periodicals respond to readers' queries within 24 hours. The average bibliometric indices of the 73 preventive medicine periodicals are as follows: the total publication number 259, the impact factor 0.392, the total citation 742, the impact factor in the same year 0.043, and the cited half-life 4.2 years. From 2001 to 2007, the 4 main indices (impact factor, impact factor in the same year, cited half-life, web download) see an upward trend. As a conclusion, Chinese preventive medicine periodicals have been improved in quantity since the 50's of the last century. The editorial, printing and service qualities have been improved. In the last decade, the average bibliometric indices (citation factor and source factor) have been improved steadily. However, the differences of the indices among journals are significant. Compared with the overall quality of Chinese scientific periodicals, the levels of network information and open database of preventive medicine periodicals lag relatively behind and need improvement.
