We are delighted to announce that Pulmonary Circulation has received a new Impact Factor of 3.017. This is an excellent result and we would like to congratulate Chief Editors, Jason Yuan and Anna Hemnes for this achievement. Congratulations also, to all editors, deputy editors, associate editors, scientific advisers, and editorial board members who have contributed to this achievement.
Impact Factors are awarded to quality journals and are a measure of the frequency that an average article in a journal has been cited in a given year.
This score is Pulmonary Circulation's highest impact factor so far, up from 2.075 in 2020. Pulmonary Circulation is now ranked higher, at 73/142 in the “Cardiac & Cardiovascular Systems” category, and 37/64 in “Respiratory System”, compared with 78/138 and 42/64 respectively last year.
This achievement confirms Pulmonary Circulation as a leading journal featuring the high-quality material on the pulmonary circulation and pulmonary vascular disease.
Professor Nick Morrell, Editor in Chief, steps down
Professor Nick Morrell, who served as one of Pulmonary Circulation’s two founding Editor-in-Chiefs, has stepped down. Nick has been instrumental in the development of the journal over its first 10 years and has been able to enjoy its immense success. Under his leadership, the journal started as an idea among peers and has gone on to become an internationally renowned journal with an Impact Factor of 3.017, and total article count of 1154.
The PVRI would like to thank Nick for his outstanding contribution to Pulmonary Circulation Journal and we wish him the very best of luck in his future endeavours both in science and personally.
