Endocrine Reviews is Top-Ranked Journal in the Category of "Endocrinology and Metabolism"

August 06, 2014

Washington, DC—In Thomson Reuters’ recently released annual Journal Citation Report (JCR) for 2013, Endocrine Reviews ranked first in Impact Factor among the 123 journals in the “Endocrinology & Metabolism” category.

A highly-regarded metric used to measure a journal’s success, the 2013 Impact Factor is calculated by taking the number of citations made in 2013 to articles published in 2011 and 2012, and then dividing that number by the total number of articles published in 2011 and 2012.

Endocrine Reviews retained its ranking as the top journal in the field of Endocrinology & Metabolism, with an Impact Factor of 19.358 for 2013. The total number of citations received is another measure of success for journals tracked by the Journal Citation Report. The Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism ranked first in the number of citations received in 2013.

“We are thrilled that Endocrine Reviews has once more earned the highest Impact Factor in the category of Endocrinology & Metabolism,” said Margaret Shupnik, PhD, the Society’s Publications Core Committee Chair. “This great achievement would not be possible without the excellent work of our authors, reviewers and editors.”

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