Date:8/4/2014

Bethesda, MD (Aug. 4, 2014) The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) is pleased to announce that both AGA journals maintained their strong standing with the release of the much anticipated 2013 impact factors. In a field of 74 gastroenterology and hepatology journals, Gastroenterology remains the number one journal, with a record high impact factor of 13.9, and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH) improved its ranking from number eight to number seven, with an impact factor of 6.5. The five-year impact factor for Gastroenterology is 12.9, which is the highest among all of the journals in the field; CGH's five-year impact factor is very strong as well at 5.9.

"These first-rate standings are a testament to the quality of original articles, reviews and commentaries the AGA journals receive and publish, and to how well they are received by the GI research and practice communities," said Bishr Omary, MD, PhD, editor-in-chief, Gastroenterology. "The AGA journals remain committed to disseminating the top clinical, translational and basic research in the field, with rapid online access upon acceptance, in addition to offering a multitude of added-value content such as podcasts, videos, resource centers and social media."

The impact factor is the number of citations a journal receives in a given year to articles published in the two previous years. In 2013, papers published in 2012 and 2011 were highly cited Gastroenterology received more than 9,000 citations and CGH received more than 2,000 citations. Both journals also had outstanding immediacy indices a measure of how quickly a journal's content is cited within a given year, indicating how topical it is.

"Gastroenterology and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology will continue to provide outstanding service to their authors, offering rigorous, fair peer review and fast decisions, making them the top destinations for research results," said Hashem B. El-Serag, MD, MPH, editor-in-chief, CGH. "We are pleased to welcome AGA's newest peer-reviewed journal, Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and look forward to helping it attain the same level of recognition within the gastroenterology and hepatology community."

Under the guidance of Editor-in-Chief Jerrold R. Turner, MD, PhD, AGAF, Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CMGH) will be an all-digital journal that will be freely available to researchers around the world. The first issue will be published in January 2015. Visit http://www.editorialmanager.com/cmgh to learn more and submit a manuscript to CMGH.
