ERR to receive Impact Factor in 2019
21 November, 2018
The European Respiratory Review has been accepted for indexing in Clarivate Analytics’ Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), meaning that it will receive its first Impact Factor in summer 2019. Articles from 2016 onwards will now be included in SCIE, as well as the Journal Citation Reports and Current Contents.
The ERR, a fully open access journal, is the second ERS journal to join the SCIE. The European Respiratory Journal this year recorded its highest-ever Impact Factor, of 12.242.
Responding to the news, Chief Editor Sergio Harari said: “I’m delighted that the ERR is receiving this recognition. It reflects the efforts of successive Chief Editors to continuously improve the journal, and of the authors, reviewers and editorial boards who have carried out the hard work of producing and selecting high-quality articles for publication.”
Chief Editor Elect Yochai Adir, who takes over the journal in 2019, added: “This news is a richly deserved boost for the ERR. I am looking forward to the challenge of maintaining the journal’s high standard, and I would like to thank all the people who have made this achievement possible.”
