    ABSTRACT: 目的 分析近5 年美国«科学引文索引»(Science Citation Index, SCI)收录发表的艾灸文献, 从而掌握当前艾灸研究近况, 以期为本疗法的后续研究提供参考。 方法 电子检索PubMed及Web of Science数据库, 两位评价者独立整理检索文献, 并对文献分别从数量、 文献类型、 期刊来源、 影响因子(Impact Factor, IF)、 国别、 发表院校、 病种及疗效评价和国内外比较八方面进行分析。 结果和结论 共纳入文献53 篇。 近5年SCI收录艾灸文献逐年递增, 多为临床研究或系统评价, 但发表杂志IF不高(大多小于5); 艾灸治疗病重繁多, 疗效尚不确定, 疗效机制也尚不明确。 期待更多高质量的研究以明确艾灸临床疗效和增加相关文献的SCI 发表数量。
