New JHLT Impact Factor Released for 2013

Below is the announcement to the ISHLT membership via email from Mandeep Mehra on June 20, 2013.

I am pleased to inform you that the 2012 Journal Impact factors were released earlier today and the Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation has once again made substantial gains in prestige.

Our 2012 Impact factor is 5.112 (up from 4.332 last year).

This places us in rank as follows:
Specific Categories: These are categories that support the niche market

Solid Organ Specific Transplant Journals: #1
Transplantation (General): #2 (out of 46)

General Categories: These are categories that are broad based and as a rule it is difficult to find ones way into the top tier as a niche journal

Surgery: #4 (out of 199)
Respiratory Diseases: #5 (out of 50)
Cardiovascular Medicine and Surgery: #19 (out of 122 journals)

The close collaboration with the journal for the vast array of collaborative statements, guidelines in transplantation and end organ disease, and diversified focus to capture the field of MCS and Pulmonary Vascular Diseases. It is the trust that authors place in the journal that allows it to position for success.

Thank you,
