American College of Medical Genetics Announces Increase in Genetics in Medicine Journal Impact Factor of 35% to 5.28
ACMG also announced that the Thomson Reuters Impact Factor Journal Citation Reports has increased the impact factor of the ACMG's peer-reviewed medical genetics and genomics journal, Genetics in Medicine (GIM) from 3.922 to 5.280. This places GIM in the top 15% of all Genetics journals. A journal's Impact Factor is an objective measure of the world's leading journals based on articles' cited references and is oft considered a measure of a journal's overall successful performance and relevance of a journal to its field.
"As Editor-in-Chief I am particularly delighted with the rise in Genetics in Medicine's impact factor," said James P. Evans, MD, PhD, FACMG. "GIM strives to be the leading journal in the field of Clinical Medical Genetics and as such is focused on the wide dissemination of evidence-based articles that address a broad range of issues. Increasingly, genetics and genomics are permeating medicine in a broad fashion. We thus also strive to publish material that matters not only to those in clinical genetics but also to non-genetics specialists who increasingly need to understand how to incorporate genetic advances into their field."
