BMJ and FSRH are delighted that to report that the impact factor of the BMJ Sexual and Reproductive Health (BMJ SRH) has increased.
The impact factor is a metric commonly used to evaluate the relative importance of a journal within its field. It measures the frequency with which the average 'citeable' (research or review) article published in the journal has been cited in other journal articles in a particular time period.
Impact factors are released annually and journals are categorised by topic area. Authors, readers and librarians often look at the impact factor when deciding where to submit their work, which journals to read, and which journals to subscribe to.
We are pleased to announce that the impact factor for BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health (still listed under its old name JFPRHC) has increased from 1.519 to 2.027 and is now ranked in the top 50% of journals in the 'Obstetrics & Gynaecology' category.
