AGA is proud to announce that its journals have maintained their exceptional standing in the field of gastroenterology and hepatology, based on Impact Factor. The Impact Factor is a measure of the frequency with which articles published in the previous two years are cited and is commonly used to rank the significance of journals within their fields.

GastroenterologyAGA’s flagship journal, received a record high Impact Factor of 33.883, the biggest increase in the journal’s history. Gastroenterology maintains its position among an elite group of journals focused on publishing original research, spanning basic to clinical, in our field. The new Impact Factor ranks second among original research journals in the field. Co-Editors-in-Chief (EICs) Richard M. Peek, Jr., MD, and Douglas A. Corley, MD, PhD, remark “We would like to thank our entire board of outstanding editors, the insightful reviewers, the remarkable authors, as well as the incredible AGA editorial staff, for their exceptional work over the past year to allow us the privilege of publishing high-impact articles and reviews that are widely used by our readership. It was an honor to be part of such a cohesive, dedicated and multifaceted team.”

Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH), AGA’s clinically focused journal, also reached a record high with an Impact Factor of 13.576, continuing as the field’s top exclusively clinically oriented journal. This puts CGH at a rank of 7th among 93 journals in the field. Fasiha Kanwal, MD, MSHS, EIC of CGH, notes “I am thrilled to see CGH rise as one of the top clinical GI journals in terms of Impact Factor. I attribute this success to a true team effort that reflects the commitment and hard work of all associate editors, editorial team and everyone in the AGA publications office. I want to extend a warm and most heartfelt thanks to our authors, reviewers and readers! We would not have been able to achieve this milestone without your support, contributions and the faith that you place in CGH.

To round things out, Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CMGH), AGA’s basic and translational open-access journal maintained a strong position in the field with an impact factor of 8.797, placing it 17th in the category and second among non-clinical journals. EICs Klaus Kaestner, PhD, and Michael Pack, MD, state “As co-EICs of CMGH, we send congratulations to the journal’s board of editors, editorial board, reviewers and superb editorial staff on this year’s Impact Factor. We are delighted that CMGH continues to have significant impact in the GI and hepatology research community and look forward to continuing to provide our readership with cutting-edge research and review articles.”

AGA congratulates and thanks the boards of all three journals for their editorial leadership. We also thank our authors, readers and reviewers for their continued support of AGA’s journals. We look forward to continuing to push the envelope in scientific publishing in the upcoming year,
