New Impact Factors Released

We are proud to announce the latest impact factors (IFs) for the British Society for Immunology’s official journals: Clinical & Experimental Immunology has achieved an IF of 3.532 and Immunology has reached its highest ever IF of 5.016 .

We’d like to take this opportunity to celebrate our journals for building upon their position as highly respected publications within the field of immunology.

We’d like to thank our editorial teams, led by Editors-in-Chief Leonie Taams and Simon Milling, for their ongoing commitment to the journals, and everyone who has contributed to the continued success of our journals, including authors, readers, reviewers and editors.

Whilst we are aware that the impact factor has certain limitations, we take this as one measure of the high quality work submitted by our authors, contributing highly cited reviews and research, which we have highlighted here.
