JAAD enjoys another JIF! Journal takes top honors for third straight year!

Illustration for Impact Report on JAAD

JAAD achieved the number one Journal Impact Factor (JIF) again in 2021 and that’s a big deal! It means that JAAD is being cited more than any other dermatology journal, which may also mean your research is being cited a lot more.

Here are all the impressive facts:

JAAD received the top JIF for the field of dermatology for the third year in a row, with the JIF coming in at an historic 15.487 for 2021. This score is up considerably from the previous year’s JIF of 11.527.

JAAD also achieved the greatest number of citations in the field — 41,522.

Both measures place JAAD resoundingly in the No. 1 position in the field of 68 journals measured by Clarivate’s Journal Citations Report (JCR) Web of Science for the two-year window measured.
