New Impact Factor (2020)
BJBMS’s Editorial team proudly announces that the Journal Impact Factor for BJBMS has again risen by more than 60% over the last year. The latest BJBMS’s Impact Factor (2020) is 3.363.
The increase in impact factor reflects the exacting standards met by the research the journal publishes. 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 Clarivate Analytics (formerly known as Thomson Reuters), a recognized authority for evaluating the usefulness of a journal.
The Association of Basic Medical Sciences would like to wholeheartedly thank the Editorial Board, authors, and all the reviewers for their ongoing support, tremendous hard work, and dedication. Their contribution ensures that BJBMS continues to receive a high-quality research material, enabling its community to advance medical research and education for the public benefit. BJBMS team will work hard in the future to become even better and to continue this rate of success.
