All Four ACSM journals boost Impact Ranking to all-time high

Articles in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise® (MSSE) and Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews (ESSR) continue to be cited frequently in the sport sciences literature, according to an industry report released last week. In fact, the impact factors for all four ACSM journals increased from the previous year and are the highest is each journal’s history.

ESSR and MSSE are ranked No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, out of 84 journals in the Sport Sciences category of the Journal Citation Reports® for 2011 issued by Thomson Reuters. ESSR’s impact factor is 4.491, up from 3.825 in 2010. MSSE’s impact factor is 4.431, up from 4.106. In 2010, MSSE ranked third and ESSR ranked fourth in the Sport Sciences category.

The impact factor for Current Sports Medicine Reports increased to 1.140 from 1.086, and ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal® increased to 0.404 from 0.292.

The impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the "average article" in a journal is cited in a given period of time. The 2011 impact factor measures citations in 2011 to articles published in 2009 and 2010.

In both 2010 and 2011, Sports Medicine, a monthly review journal, was ranked No. 1.
