Journal of Nuclear Medicine's impact grows, remains consistently high over past 5 years

RESTON, Va.The quality and influence of SNMs Journal of Nuclear Medicine climbed this past year, placing the societys flagship publication in fourth place among 85 nuclear medicine, radiology and medical imaging journals, according to results from the Thomson Institute for Scientific Informations Journal Citation Report.

JNM is ranked in the top 5 percent of all imaging journals based on its impact factor, which rose to 4.986 from 4.684 in 2005, placing it ahead of other imaging journals such as Human Brain Mapping, Seminars in Nuclear Medicine, the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, the European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and Radiotherapy and Oncology. The impact factor is a direct measure of the number of times material in a particular journal is cited in relation to the total number of manuscripts a journal publishes. It is a way to estimate the frequency with which an average article in a journal is cited.

The Journal of Nuclear Medicines high impact factor confirms that it is very well respected by physicians and researchers and is the place for authors to submit important molecular imaging and nuclear medicine clinical, translational and clinical research findings, said SNM President Alexander J. McEwan, who speaks for the societys 16,000 physician, technologist and scientist members. The high journal impact factor and manuscript submission rate demonstrate that the scientific community values the quality of JNM articles, he added.

I want to emphasize that the achievements of JNM extend well beyond the publication of papers with favorable citation statistics, said Heinrich R. Schelbert, JNMs editor in chief. JNMthe professions most important and influential international journaldelivers significant, scholarly, peer-reviewed scientific and clinical research, noted the professor of molecular and medical pharmacology at the University of California at Los Angeles and the George V.
