Date:7/6/2012

Bethesda, MD (July 7, 2012) The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) is pleased to announce that both AGA journals maintained their strong standing with the release of the much anticipated 2011 impact factors. In a field of 74 gastroenterology and hepatology journals, Gastroenterology remains the number one journal, with an impact factor of 11.68, and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH) retains its ranking at number eight, with an impact factor of 5.63. The five-year impact factor for Gastroenterology is 12.46, which is the highest among all of the journals in the field; CGH's five-year impact factor is very strong as well at 5.97.

"These solid standings are a testament to the quality of original articles, reviews and commentaries the AGA journals publish and to the impact they have on 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, 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 2011, papers published in 2009 and 2010 were highly cited Gastroenterology received more than 9,400 citations and CGH received nearly 1,900 citations. Both journals also had outstanding immediacy indices a measure of how quickly a journal's content is cited, indicating how topical and urgent 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.
