THE JOURNAL OF INTERPROFESSIONAL CARE (JIC)
The Journal of Interprofessional Care is now widely regarded as the authoritative resource for scholarly work in the field of interprofessional education and collaborative practice.
Over the past year, the Journal saw its downloads increase for the first time to over half a million (529K).
Research attention also increased, with now an Impact Factor of 2.663 (highest to date); and a CiteScore increase to 3.5, placing the Journal in the top quartile (Q1) of the general medical category.
The Editorial Board, which consists of international experts in the field from 17 countries, have worked tremendously hard to ensure improvements in performance metrics including now a 22% Acceptance Rate and 81 days (median) from submission to first decision.
Most Journal contributors remain based in the USA, UK, Australia, and Canada but there has also been a significant increase from previously underrepresented regions in this field including Latin America and China.
Policy and public attention metrics continue to increase, with Altmetric pointing to over a thousand (1371) Twitter mentions, 17 mentions in News outlets, and 13 Policy documents such as from the World Health Organization, the UK National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, and the US National Academies.
