From the Editor of the Journal of Investigative Medicine
The Editorial Board encourages you to submit a manuscript to JIM! The AFMR is pleased to announce the most recent Impact Factor (IF) of 2.085 for the Journal of Investigative Medicine. The IF for JIM has consistently increased over the past 3 years and is at a 10 year high. "Impact Factor" is a key measure of a scientific journal's performance, reflecting the number of citations over the course of 2 years.
This milestone for JIM is a testament to the dedicated work of the editorial board, which includes Drs. Michael J. McPhaul (Editor-in-Chief), Gloria L. Vega, Don C. Rockey, Robert T. Means, and Marco Marcelli. This team selects high quality, original manuscripts of current interest to the large community of physician scientists and medical researchers. JIM showcases the latest basic, clinical and translational research in a multidisciplinary forum. It is unique by publishing biomedical advances, as well as changes affecting the clinical research community, including abstracts from the AFMR's 4 Regional Meetings. This is consistent with AFMR's mission to develop and mentor tomorrow's leaders in medical research. JIM was introduced in 1997 and is currently published by BMJ, offering 8 issues per year.
