New impact factors released 2022

We are proud to announce the latest impact factor for the British Society for Immunology’s official journal Clinical & Experimental Immunology (CEI), which has reached its highest-ever impact factor of 5.732.

We’d like to take this opportunity to celebrate CEI for building upon its position as a long-standing and highly-respected publication in the field of immunology. We’d like to thank the editorial team, led superbly by Editor-in-Chief Professor Leonie Taams, for their ongoing commitment to the journal, and everyone who has contributed to the continued success of CEI, 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.

We have curated a selection of impactful articles published in the journal to create a more comprehensive picture of research influence shown by various indicators, such as engagement and dissemination, which supplements citations. The High Impact Collection includes the top cited, most discussed (according to Altmetric scores), and top downloaded articles from 2020-present for you to read and enjoy.
