Our new Impact Factor


It’s that time of year again, when journal editors all over the world scour the lists of journal impact factors to find out their fate. Love them or loathe them, impact factors are the main external esteem indicator for journals and researchers in universities are increasingly under pressure to publish in the highest impact journals, and ideally in the top 10 for their discipline.

The amazing news for Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics is that our impact factor has today been announced to be 2.583 (up from 1.987) and our position in the table for Nutrition and Dietetics journal has climbed from 49th to 35th. Champagne corks are on the verge of popping in the office!
