Support for the Initiative for Open Citations on the rise
- 12 Jul 2017

Launched back in April, the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC) aims for 100% of citation data to be freely available for re-use. This collaboration between publishers, researchers and other stakeholders is proving to be well on the way to achieving that goal.

For users to be able to use citation data to its full potential, it needs to be machine-readable. Many publishers are already sending key information about citations within the metadata they submit to Crossref - the problem is that from the outset the default for that information has been closed.

OASPA champions openness and re-use of scholarly output and therefore is supporting I4OC which has an important objective that can be achieved by all publishers, whether or not the content of the article is open access. Once open, machine-readable citation data is free to be reused by researchers and the public, and it moves us much closer to a comprehensive and useful picture of scholarship.

ACS titles post impressive Impact Factors
- 20 Jun 2017

The peer-reviewed journals of the American Chemical Society (ACS) are once again the most-cited and/or most-impactful scientific journals across 14 scientific categories, including six core chemistry categories, according to the 2016 Journal Citation Reports (JCR), released on June 14, 2017, by Clarivate Analytics. The citation-based rankings underscore the visibility and value of the broad research published within the Society's preeminent portfolio of journals.

The 2016 JCR affirmed the continued high impact and scientific importance of the Society's flagship peer-reviewed journal - the Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) - as the forum for publishing timely research findings of broad scientific significance. JACS recorded its highest-ever Impact Factor at 13.858. It continues to be the most-cited journal in chemistry with over 500,000 total citations in 2016, up 2 percent from the prior year.

ACS Central Science, the Society's first fully open access journal and distinguished winner of an American Association of Publishers' PROSE Award earlier this year, achieved a notable inaugural Impact Factor of 7.939. Free to readers and authors alike, it has quickly established its standing as an important forum for discoveries that feature chemistry research of interest and importance to those engaged in interdisciplinary areas of scientific inquiry.

Chemical Reviews also achieved its highest-ever Impact Factor at 47.928 and again ranks No. 1 in the category of Multidisciplinary Chemistry, as well as No. 4 out of approximately 12,000 journals covered by the 2016 JCR. This underscores the journal's role as an essential resource across the sciences for comprehensive and critical reviews of important developments in diverse areas of chemistry.

Four ACS journals within the Society's materials science portfolio received their highest-ever impact ratings this year, reflecting the strength of ACS Publications in fields of basic and applied areas of materials science that interface with other scientific disciplines. ACS Nano achieved an Impact Factor of 13.942, Chemistry of Materials an Impact Factor of 9.466 and ACS Applied Materials&Interfaces an Impact Factor of 7.504. ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering debuted with an inaugural Impact Factor of 3.234, reflecting the strength of ACS in the field of materials science that involves applications from a number of scientific disciplines.

Of the 49 ACS titles covered by the 2016 JCR, 86 percent rank within the top quartile of their respective topical categories. Among this cohort are a number of journals that achieved their highest-ever Impact Factors.

More than 60 percent of the Society's journals posted an Impact Factor of 4 or higher with a portfolio median of 4.849 in 2016, up from a median of 4.803 in 2015. In addition, ACS journals were cited more than 2.9 million times in 2016, representing an increase of over 6 percent from the prior citation total.

AACC announces rise in impact factor of its journal, Clinical Chemistry
- 19 Jun 2017

AACC, a global scientific and medical professional organisation dedicated to better health through laboratory medicine, has announced that the impact factor of its journal, Clinical Chemistry, has risen to 8.008 in the 2016 Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports. This impact factor places Clinical Chemistry in the top 2.6% of 12,062 ranked academic journals and speaks to the significant influence of the science it publishes on laboratory medicine and patient care.

Laboratory medicine professionals provide essential answers to clinicians so that patients get the care they need-from diagnosing the flu to identifying the therapies that cancer patients will respond to best. As the most trusted and authoritative journal in laboratory medicine, Clinical Chemistry strives to advance the field by showcasing vital research that holds the key to challenging patient health problems. Every year, Clinical Chemistry publishes 2,000 pages of peer-reviewed papers that drive clinical testing forward and are chosen based on the novelty of their findings as well as the high quality of the scientific evidence they present. These papers cover timely subjects ranging from designer drug and Zika testing to emerging technology, such as mass spectrometry, that is transforming the way medical tests are performed.

Clinical Chemistry's consistently high impact factors reflect the exact standards met by the research the journal publishes. A journal's impact factor-calculated by Thomson Reuters, a recognized authority for evaluating the usefulness of a journal-is determined using the number of citations received in that year by articles published in the journal during the two preceding years.

ACMG's journal Genetics in Medicine now in top 2.5% of all indexed journals
- 19 Jun 2017

The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) has announced that the Thomson Reuters Impact Factor Journal Citation Reports has just increased the impact factor of the ACMG's peer-reviewed medical genetics and genomics journal, Genetics in Medicine (GIM) to 8.229 for 2016, up from 7.710 in 2015. Genetics in Medicine is published by Springer Nature.

GIM is currently ranked 10 of 166 titles in the Genetics&Heredity category and is the top-ranked of genetic journal that has a primarily clinical focus. The Impact Factor is an objective measure of the world's leading journals, based on articles' cited references and is oft considered a measure of a journal's overall successful performance and relevance to its field.

The journal, published since 1998, is supported by an expert Board of Editors representing all facets of genetic and genomic medicine, including such specialties as biochemical genetics, cytogenetics and pharmacogenetics.
