Practical Radiation Oncology (PRO), ASTRO's clinical practice journal, received its first-ever impact factor, 2.794. Also, the impact factor for the International Journal of Radiation Oncology • Biology • Physics (Red Journal), the flagship journal of ASTRO, rose to 6.203, from 5.554 last year. This marks the fourth consecutive year that the journal's impact factor has increased.
Clarivate Analytics, the company that publishes the JCR, ranked the Red Journal #30 out of 229 oncology journals and #8 out of 129 radiology, nuclear medicine, and medical imaging journals (up from #40 and #11, respectively). PRO was ranked 129/229 in oncology and 46/129 in radiology, nuclear medicine, and medical imaging.
PRO Editor-in-Chief W. Robert Lee, MD, FASTRO, said, “This is a great accomplishment for PRO. I am grateful for all of the hard work of the reviewers, editors and editorial staff, but especially the authors who put their trust in PRO and submitted their work.” Dr. Lee and Red Journal Editor-in-Chief Anthony Zietman, MD, FASTRO, are available for interviews if you are interested in writing about the new impact factors.Back To Top
