The Journal's new impact factor highest yet

The latest Journal Citation Reports have recently been released and we are delighted to reveal that Rheumatology's Impact Factor has risen to 5.245.

This is the sixth year in a row that the Impact Factor has increased; and we thank the great efforts of our authors who submit high quality and novel papers, and through the work of all of our dedicated reviewers and Editorial Board members in ensuring only the best papers are accepted.

Francesca Cockshull, Head of Publishing, said ‘’We are absolutely thrilled by this result, and it goes to show how many excellent high quality papers Rheumatology continues to receive and publish.“

To celebrate this success, we have compiled a selection of highly cited articles, showcasing the high impact research published by the Journal, which you can read here.
