Washington, DC - The Endocrine Society’s journal Endocrine Reviews ranked first in Impact Factor in the “Endocrinology and Metabolism” category, according to Thomson Reuters’ recently released annual Journal Citation Report (JCR) for 2014.

Endocrine Reviews led the 128 journals in the “Endocrinology and Metabolism” category in Thomson Reuters’ annual report. The journal has ranked at the top of the category for more than five years.

A highly-regarded metric used to measure the success of scholarly journals, the 2014 Impact Factor is calculated by tracking how many times articles that were published in 2012 and 2013 were cited during 2014. The number of citations is then divided by the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 to arrive at the Impact Factor.

Endocrine Reviews retained its ranking as the top journal in the field of Endocrinology & Metabolism, with an Impact Factor of 21.059 for 2014. The journal’s Impact Factor rose from 19.358 in 2013.

“It is an honor to see Endocrine Reviews has once again earned the highest Impact Factor in the Endocrinology & Metabolism category,” said Leonard Wartofsky, MD, who was named Editor-in-Chief of the journal in April. “This is a fitting tribute to the quality work our authors, reviewers and editors produce. I am pleased to be part of the journal’s tradition of excellence.”

Endocrine Reviews publishes bimonthly comprehensive, authoritative and timely review articles balancing both experimental and clinical endocrinology themes.
