Journal CHEST® Impact Factor Update

The journal CHEST® has just been awarded a 2-year impact factor of 7.652, the highest in its history which equates to a 24% increase over last year’s score. In addition, our 5-year impact factor is 7.854, a 7% increase over last year. With respect to the 2-year factor, CHEST is ranked 4th out of 33 journals in the Critical Care category and 7th out of 59 journals in the Respiratory System category.  

Our recent Eigenfactor places us as the second-highest ranked journal in both respiratory and critical care categories. The Eigenfactor metric adjusts the impact factor by eliminating self-citations and factoring in citations in the top tier journals.

Congratulations to all who contributed to the journal.
