Impact Factors

Thomson Reuters has released its 2016 Science Edition of the Journal Citation Reports, which gives journal impact factors and rankings of approximately 8,000 science journals. The 2016 impact factors of APS journals, along with a comparison of the past 2 years, are given in the table below. The table also shows the rank of APS journals in the physiology category, as well as each journal’s cited half-life.

The 2016 Journal Citation Reports includes an update to the Five-Year Impact Factor and Eigenfactor™ Metrics in JCR Web. Eigenfactor™ Metrics use citing journal data from the entire JCR file. The Eigenfactor™ score and the Article Influence™ score are calculated based on the citations received over a five-year period.
