The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology’s impact factor increases by 34%
ROSEMONT, Ill. (July 5, 2022) — The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology is the top peer-reviewed journal in its field, according to the 2021 journal impact factor rankings recently published by Clarivate’s 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 (2019-20). JAAD’s 2021 impact factor of 15.487 is a 34% increase over its previous ranking. This places JAAD in the No. 1 position among 69 dermatology journals ranked by JCR in this period.
The journal’s impact factor has continued to steadily increase over the years, and its 2021 ranking reflects the highest so far in the journal’s 43-year history.
“The journal impact factor reflects the relevance of the content published and the quality of the work contributed by our authors, reviewers, and editors. JAAD, and dermatology journals overall, fared well again this year because of the continued growth in relevant content in the field, including an influx of highly cited articles on COVID-19 and a burst in research output overall during the pandemic,” said board-certified dermatologist Dirk M. Elston, MD, FAAD, editor of JAAD. “Impact factor notwithstanding, JAAD’s mission remains to publish the content most relevant to practicing dermatologists to help them 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.
