The latest Impact Factor for BJOG has risen to 3.101 (from 2.666), the best score the journal has ever achieved. The Impact Factor is a widely recognized classification of a journal's influence and reputation and this impressive score has led to BJOG now being rated as among the top ten journals in its discipline.
Also, BJOG has an immediacy Index of 1.423, the highest in the ISI obstetrics and gynaecology subject category. The Immediacy Index, (another Journal Citation Reports® metric) indicates the current relevance of a journal based on citations that appear the same year an article was published.
We would like to thank the reviewers, our team of Editors, the Editorial Board and authors who have all contributed to this achievement.
