The impact factor for the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR®) realized a 13% increase in the new 2021 Journal Citation Report. The impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of a journal’s articles cited in scientific journals by the total number of citable articles published in the prior two years. The JACR’s impact factor — having increased yearly for the last 10 years — increased from 5.532 to 6.240.
“The JACR continues to exceed expectations,” said Ruth C. Carlos, MD, MS, Editor-in-Chief of the JACR. “I am grateful to our team of authors, reviewers and readers for their support.”
The JACR is the official journal of the American College of Radiology®(ACR®), providing information about topics that affect the practice of diagnostic radiologists, interventional radiologists, medical physicists and radiation oncologists.
