Adis Journals Make Impressive Impact Factor Gains

YARDLEY, Pa., July 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Pharma Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of scientific information and analytics to pharmaceutical and healthcare professionals, today announced strong impact factor (IF) gains for its Adis line of drug therapy and patient management journals.  11 of the 13 Adis journals that carried IFs in 2009 bettered their performance in 2010 according to the annual Journal Citation Reports® published in June.The most impressive gains over 2009 were made by PharmacoEconomics (IF 3.44) – up 34 percent to become the leading Health Outcomes Research journal, and Sports Medicine (IF 5.072) - up 63 percent, also becoming the highest ranking title in its field.

Drugs in R&D (IF 1.707), re-launched in 2010 as Adis' first fully open access MEDLINE-indexed journal gained 26 percent. Other standout performers include CNS Drugs (IF 4.497) - up 16 percent and Biodrugs (IF 4.192) – up 20 percent.  

"The price of Adis journals was significantly restructured at the end of 2009 providing affordable access for a wider group of customers," said Iain Spray, Adis Product Manager, Wolters Kluwer Pharma Solutions.  "These IF gains are partly the result of that increased access, and the continued determination of our editors, editorial boards and publishing team to strive for the highest level of quality."

An impact factor quantifies the relative influence of a scholarly journal in its scientific field.  It is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a given year.

Adis journals, covering the evidence-based pharmacology spectrum from clinical pharmacology to drug development and drug safety, to pharmacoeconomics, medical biotechnology and disease management, are available on AdisOnline (
