The 2018 journal impact factors were released last week and The Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR), the official journal of the SCMR, maintained an outstanding impact factor of 5.070. The 2018 Impact Factor reflects the frequency with which papers published in JCMR in 2016 and 2017 were cited by articles in 2018. This key indicator demonstrates the influence and scientific value of the journal.
According to the 2018 InCites Journal Citation Reports, JCMR placed 28th out of 136 journals in the Cardiac & Cardiovascular systems category and 16th out of 129 journals in the Radiology, Nuclear medicine & Medical imaging category. The total number of citations of JCMR articles was up from 4,918 citations in 2017 to 5,113 in 2018.
The outstanding Impact Factor reflects the high scientific and clinical value of the papers published in JCMR. Congratulations Editor Warren Manning and to all of those who helped contribute to the success of the journal!
