The 2020 Journal Impact Factor for PM&R—your Academy’s official scientific journal—is 1.821!
The Journal Impact Factor (Journal Citation Reports, Clarivate Analytics, 2020) is a citation metric that provides a relative measure of the quality of papers published. It is a ratio of the total number of citations received in a given year relative to the number of papers published during the 2 preceding years.
PM&R stands among the best-of-the-best prestigious scientific journals, while continuing to promote the important work of physiatry.
The Academy launched this peer-reviewed journal in 2009, specifically for the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician. PM&R was selected for MEDLINE indexing later that year. The goal of the publication is to advance education and impact the specialty through the timely delivery of clinically-relevant and evidence-based research and review information.
