JACC Journals See Sweeping Increase in Impact Factors

According to 2016 Impact Factors for Journals released on June 14, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC) has retained its position as the #1 cardiovascular journal in the world for the fourth year in a row. Under the leadership of Editor-in-Chief Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, MACC, JACC is celebrating its highest Impact Factor ever of 19.896, up from 17.759 in 2015. The journal holds the top position in scientific impact among the more than 120 journals in the Cardiac & Cardiovascular Systems category – a testament to its commitment to publishing the highest quality science.

The results also included increased Impact Factors for JACC: Cardiovascular Imaging (10.189; #6), JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions (8.841; #7) and JACC: Heart Failure (8.493; #8). The two newest JACC Journals – JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology and JACC: Basic to Translational Science – do not yet qualify for Impact Factor consideration. Impact Factor results for 2016 are based on articles published during the 2014 and 2015 calendar years.

JACC Journals continue to be the profession’s top destination for significant clinical and translational cardiovascular research, guidelines and review articles. ACC members can read the entire family of JACC Journals for free at JACC.org. Busy clinicians can hear audio summaries recorded by Fuster, and JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology Editor-in-Chief David J. Wilber, MD, FACC, on JACC.org, iTunes or Android’s Player FM app
