JBJS: Highest 2015 Impact Factor Among Ortho Journals

JBJS-TheJournal_CMYK.jpg

For the second year in a row, The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (JBJS) has topped the field of orthopaedic journals in Impact Factor (IF). The Impact Factor measures the citation performance of a journal over a two-year period.

According to data from the 2015 edition of Journal Citation Reports (JCR), the JBJS Impact Factor is 5.163—the only orthopaedic journal to have an IF above 5.0. JBJS articles were cited a total of 3,268 times during 2013 and 2014, a 10.5% increase relative to the prior two-year period. In addition, The Journal’s five-year Impact Factor, an even more robust representation of sustained impact, was 5.372.

Although the Impact Factor is just one metric by which The Journal’s influence on musculoskeletal care is measured, our highest-in-the-field number is a testament to the ceaselessly hard working editors, reviewers, and authors who are responsible for the practice-changing content we publish.

For those of you interested in revisiting the most influential work in orthopaedics, according to JCR data, here are the top-three cited JBJS articles published in 2013-2014:
