The 2018 impact factors have been released and I am proud to share that The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology
(JACI) and The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice
(JACI: In Practice
) remain number one and two respectively in the "Allergy" category
of the Journal Citation Reports published by Clarivate.
Even more impressive is that both journals again had impact factor increases! The new impact factors are 14.110
for JACI and 7.550
for JACI: In Practice
. These are remarkable numbers, especially considering how young of a journal JACI: In Practice
As you know, an impact factor is a performance benchmark among scholarly publications that measures how often its contents are cited over a particular period. Each AAAAI journal's new impact factor counts the number of citations in 2018 of articles that were published in 2016 and 2017.
There is also an "Immunology" category of the Journal Citation Reports published by Clarivate. I'm also proud to share the news that JACI remains number six
in this category and JACI: In Practice is now number 17
(versus number 21 last year).
On behalf of the AAAAI Board of Directors, congratulations to the JACI and JACI: In Practice
teams, including JACI Editor-in-Chief Zuhair K. Ballas, MD, FAAAAI; JACI: In Practice
Editor-in-Chief Michael Schatz, MD, MS, FAAAAI; JACI Deputy Editors David P. Huston, MD, FAAAAI, and Rachel L. Miller, MD, FAAAAI; JACI: In Practice
