Journal of the American College of Radiology Increases Impact Factor in New Rankings

According to the newly released 2019 Journal Citation Report, the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR) has achieved a 2018 Impact Factor of 3.785, its 7th consecutive increase in impact factor year-over-year. The new report ranks the JACR 25th among the 128 journals in the Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and Medical Imaging category, an increase from our previous rank of 28 and outpacing several peer publications.

“The JACR’s continued rise in rankings and impact reflects our ongoing commitment to deliver the highest quality content from the leading experts in the radiological sciences,” said Ruth C. Carlos, MD, MS, editor in chief of the JACR. “From TI-RADS to burnout, and breast screening to appropriateness criteria, our readers trust us to consistently deliver the research and commentary they need to understand, innovate and advance their practice while improving the quality of care for patients.”

The 2018 Journal Impact Factor measures a journal’s relevance to the scholarly publishing community. It is calculated by dividing the number of citations by the total number of articles published in the previous two years.
