CJSM makes an even bigger impact

We are pleased to report that the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine saw an increase in its 2010 Impact Factor, with a new figure of 2.110.

CJSM is now at #17 amongst all journals in the Orthopaedics category, a rise from #25 last year, and at #25 amongst all journals in the Sport Science category which represents a leap from #32 last year.

The message is simple – if you want your research in the field of Sport and Exercise Medicine to be cited, CJSM is the place to publish.

The concept of the Impact Factor was first introduced by Eugene Garfield in 1955, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information which is now part of Thomson Reuters. For those of you who would like to learn a little more about Impact Factors, a good place to start is the Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge website which goes into some detail in explaining the concept of the Impact Factor . Interested readers can find out more about the history and meaning of the Impact Factor from Garfield’s presentation given at the International Congress on Peer Review and Biomedical Publication in Chicago, 2005 which is freely available as a pdf file online (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to view, available for free here).
