Here in this post, apart from JAMA Impact Factor, I have tried to compile all the necessary information a research scholar would seek before publishing an article in the journal.

JAMA Impact Factor

Impact Factor (IF) or often called journal impact factor (JIF) is an index provided by an analytics company named Clarivate. The impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of times the articles are cited in the last two years by the total number of publications in those two years.

  • Total Citations in 2020 and 2021 = 500
  • Total Number of Publications in 2020 and 2021 = 100
  • Impact Factor of the Journal in 2022 = 500/100 = 5

JAMA Impact Factor (2017-2022)

  • JAMA Impact Factor 2017 – 47.661
  • JAMA Impact Factor 2018 – 51.273
  • JAMA Impact Factor 2019 – 45.540
  • JAMA Impact Factor 2020 – 56.272
  • JAMA Impact Factor 2021 – NA (updated in June 2022)
