Artificial Organs Receives 2003 Impact Factor
Recently, the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) released the 2003
Impact Factors and rankings for various journals in the sciences and social
sciences. For 2003, the Impact Factor for Artificial Organs increased from
0.926 to 1.278, making it one of the top rankings of its peer category!
While Impact Factor is considered by some to be an important rating for a
journal, with evidence in existence suggesting that Impact Factors continue
to have an increasing influence on researchers and librarians, it is still
only one measure of importance. Additional measures include: the frequency
with which articles from a given journal are cited by other journals
(Artificial Organs again is at the top of the field in receiving citations),
the average number of times each article is viewed online (from
January-June 2004, each article published in 2004 in Artificial Organs has
been viewed an average of 322 times), and the total number of online
accesses the journal receives in a given period (from January-June 2004,
there were 117 015 full text views of Artificial Organs articles).
Artificial Organs continues to excel in all of the areas that matter most to
researchers and clinicians alike.
We thank you for your enduring support, contributions, and readership.
