Latest impact factors for gastroenterology and hepatology journals

Interesting changes have been revealed from the latest gastroenterology and hepatology journal impact factors, for the year 2000.

Gastroenterology is still the journal with the greatest impact factor, followed by Hepatology.

However, now in third place is Seminars in Liver Disease. This journal was 7th in 1999. Gut has therefore been displaced into 4th place.

Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics is another improver - it has moved up to 6th place, from last year's position of 8th.

The impact factors are published by ISI. Their definition of an impact factor is "a measure of the frequency with which the 'average article' in a journal has been cited in a particular year or period."

The annual journal citation report impact factor is a ratio between citations and recent citable items published. Thus, the impact factor of a journal is calculated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.

Journals with greatest impact:
1 Gastroenterology
2 Hepatology
3 Semin Liver Dis
4 Gut
5 J Hepatol
6 Aliment Pharmacol Ther

ISI explain that, "The impact factor is useful in clarifying the significance of absolute (or total) citation frequencies. It eliminates some of the bias of such counts, which favor large journals over small ones, or frequently issued journals over less frequently issued ones, and of older journals over newer ones. Particularly in the latter case such journals have a larger citable body of literature than smaller or younger journals.

"All things being equal, the larger the number of previously published articles, the more often a journal will be cited."

Here is the "Top Forty Four" of the impact factors for 2000:
