JMIR now has an unprecedented impact factor of 5.175 (5-yr impact factor: 5.835)


(Toronto, Jun 15th, 2017) Clarivate Analytics (formerly the IP Division of Thomson Reuters) has released its' impact factors for 2016 (Journal Citaton Reports, 2017), which reflect how often papers published in 2014-2015 were cited in 2016. The impact factor of the Journal of Medical Internet Research has risen to an unprecedented impact factor of 5.175 (5-yr impact factor: 5.835). JMIR is making history, as never before did a journal in the Medical Informatics discipline have an impact factor of >5! JMIR is ranked #1 in the Medical Informatics discipline, and #4 in the large Health Sciences + Health Services research category. JMIR has a significantly better impact factor than its competitor journals which include JAMIA (3.7), Plos One (2.8), BMJ Open (2.2), PeerJ (2.2) etc.

At the same time, we are thrilled to announce that our sister journal JMIR mHealth and uHealth received an inaugural impact factor of 4.636, which is a stunning success. It would be ranked #2 behind JMIR in the medical informatics category (however, Clarivate only included it in the Health Sciences + Health Services research category).

Congratulations to all authors, reviewers and editors who were part of this success!
