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

According to the newly released 2020 Journal Citation Report, the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR) has achieved a 2019 Impact Factor of 4.268, up from 3.785 last year. This is the journal’s 8th consecutive increase in impact factor year-over-year. The new report ranks the JACR 20th among the 128 journals in the Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and Medical Imaging category, an increase from our previous rank of 25 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,” said Ruth C. Carlos, MD, MS, editor in chief of the JACR. “From COVID-19 to corporatization, we deliver reliable and trustworthy information to advance patient care and practice management.”

The 2019 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.
