Rising Impact Factor for JACI


Once again, we can all share in a proud moment for the AAAAI and our specialty.

The 2014 impact factors have been announced by Thomson Reuters and The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (JACI) has risen to a new impact factor of 11.476.

What is an impact factor?
An impact factor is a performance benchmark among scholarly publications that measures how often its contents are cited over a specific period. The JACI’s 2014 impact factor counts the number of citations in 2014 of articles that were published in 2012 and 2013.

Consider these impressive statistics about the JACI’s new impact factor:

  • The JACI impact factor has now been over 11 for four consecutive years.

  • JACI is still firmly ranked number one in Thomson Reuters’ “Allergy” category of 24 journals.

  • In the “Immunology” category, which has 148 journals listed, JACI moved up to the number six spot. Last year, JACI was ranked number eight.

  • JACI had 38,706 total cites during 2014. This is more total cites than the next 10 “Allergy” journals combined.  

Congratulations to the entire JACI team, including Editor-in-Chief Donald Y. M. Leung, MD, PhD, FAAAAI, Deputy Editor Stanley J. Szefler, MD, FAAAAI, all of the Associate Editors, Editorial Board and staff.

"The latest impact factor serves as validation of the leadership position of JACI. Impressively, the total number of citations in JACI is greater than the combined citations in the next ten Allergy journals illustrating our global dominance in the allergy/immunology field. We are now working closely with the incoming JACI Co-Editors-in-Chief, Drs. Cezmi Akdis and Zuhair Ballas, to build upon the successes of recent years and ensure a smooth transition," said Dr. Leung.
