Genome Medicine leads the way as another 15 BioMed Central journals are tracked for Impact Factors.
Editor of Genome Medicine, Rebecca Furlong, said "We are delighted that Genome Medicine's success will be recognized with an Impact Factor, and would like to thank our Section Editors, Editorial Board, and all our authors, reviewers and readers for their support."
"Genome Medicine publishes peer-reviewed research articles, new methods and software tools in all areas of medicine studied from a post-genomic perspective. The journal also provides review and comment on the latest advances in translational genomics and personalized medicine, and their implications for the clinical and ethical management of human health and disease."
Genome Medicine leads the way in a long list of BioMed Central journals that have recently been accepted for Impact Factor tracking by Thomson Reuters. The newly tracked journals will soon appear on Web of Science, and should receive their first Impact Factors in June this year.
