The Journal Impact Factors for 2019 have been released and IJIC’s have once again increased, to 2.753.
In 2012, our rating was 1.299, so our impact factor has more than doubled in these 7 years. This reflects our citations increasing from 341 in 2012 to 1,245 in 2019.
The journal is now in the first quartile of journals in Health Policy and Services (17/87) and in the second quartile for Health Care Sciences & Services (32/102).
This improved Impact Factor is accompanied by increasing use of the journal, with almost 15% more readers accessing the IJIC website last year in comparison to 2018 – a total of 185,000 users in 2019.
The co- Editors in Chief would like to thank our authors, our reviewers, our editorial board, and our Managing Editor, Susan Royer, for their interest and support.
