The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology’s impact factor increases by 16.5%
ROSEMONT, Ill. (July 14, 2020) — The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology is the top peer-reviewed journal in its field, according to the 2019 impact factor rankings recently published by the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) Web of Science Group.
A journal’s impact factor reflects how often the average article in that journal has been cited in a given time period, which for JCR is two years. JAAD’s 2019 impact factor of 8.277 is a 16.5% increase over its previous ranking. This places JAAD in the No. 1 position among 68 dermatology journals ranked by JCR.
The journal’s impact factor has continued to steadily increase over the years, and its 2019 ranking reflects the highest so far in the journal’s 40-year history.
“The continuous growth of the impact factor of dermatology journals is a testament to the growing body of highly relevant research in dermatology,” says board-certified dermatologist Dirk M. Elston, MD, FAAD, editor of JAAD. “JAAD covers the breadth and depth of the specialty — which is reflected in the high number of citations its articles receive — in order to advance dermatologic expertise and improve patient outcomes.”
JAAD is the most widely read dermatology journal in the world, according to Kantar Media. In 2009, the Special Libraries Association named JAAD one of the most 100 influential journals of the past 100 years.
