Biomolecules and Biomedicine’s 2022 Impact Factor Released!

The Editorial team of Biomolecules and Biomedicine is proud to announce the official release of the Impact Factor (IF) for the year 2022. The IF stands at 3.4!

As change is the only constant in the academic world, our Journal, previously known as the Bosnian Journal of Basic Medical Sciences, has transitioned seamlessly into Biomolecules and Biomedicine, while retaining the established impact factor of the Bosnian Journal of Basic Medical Sciences


Impact Factor by Clarivate Analytics (2022) = 3.4

The Impact Factor is determined using the number of citations received in that year by articles published in the journal during the two preceding years and is calculated by  Journal Citation Reports/Clarivate Analytics ( This year, JCR has implemented a change, calculating the Journal Impact Factor (a measure of a journal’s importance, JIF) using one decimal place instead of the usual three for all journals.

CiteScore by Scopus (2022) = 5.3

CiteScore is counted by Scopus/Elsevier, and it is 5.3 for 2022. Check the Biomolecules and Biomedicine current CiteScore here.

Biomolecules and Biomedicine has maintained its Q2 position, as indicated by the Journal Citation Indicator (JCI). Essentially, the JCI tracks the average influence of a journal’s articles over the past three years by counting their citation frequency.
