Impact Factor Announcement

We are pleased to announce that the AJRCCM (or Blue journal) Impact Factor (IF), rose from 13.20 to 15.24 in the most recent rankings. The impact factor for AJRCMB (or the Red journal), the ATS home for basic science research, is now 3.79. We expect the Red IF to rise over the next few years under the leadership of Paul Schumacker, PhD, the new Editor-in-Chief. In addition, earlier this year, the ATS Stat Newsletter announced that the IF for the Annals of the American Thoracic Society (AnnalsATS) was expected. We have since learned that the announcement is delayed. As soon as we hear from the Web of Science, the scientific citation indexing service, we will update you. Thank you for your patience.
