TRANSFUSION Impact Factor Increases Significantly

Paul Ness, MD, and the journal Associate Editors are pleased to announce an increase in the latest bibliometric ranking of the journal. The 2016 Impact Factor (IF) rose to 3.386, up from 3.042 in 2015. The IF is a ranking based, in part, on the number of a journal’s articles cited in a 2-year span compared to the total number of articles published by that journal in the same period. The IF is influenced (among many factors) by the scope of a journal’s content, the number of journals publishing on the same subject matter, the type of articles cited, and where the cited articles are referenced. Despite the imperfections of the IF system, it is the industry standard for journal bibliometrics.
