The Medical Journal of Australia—a publication of the AMA—has reached its highest ever Journal Impact Factor (JIF) of 6.112, according to the 2019 Clarivate Analytics Journal Citation Report.  

In its fourth consecutive rise, the MJA’s JIF has climbed from 3.369 in 2015, 3.675 in 2016, 4.227 in 2017, and 5.332 in the 2018 report, placing it firmly in the top 20 titles in Clarivate’s General and Internal Medicine category, ranked 16th in the world.  

Laureate Professor Nicholas Talley, AC, editor-in-chief of the MJAsaid that the MJA is Australia’s highest-ranking medical journal and one of the world’s leading journals.  

"We have very ambitious plans to be even better because we believe this is what Australian researchers deserve. We welcome your best original research, reviews, meta-analyses, clinical trials, guidelines and perspectives,” Laureate Professor Talley said.   

The Clarivate Journal Impact Factor is based upon numbers of citations of journal articles by other peer-reviewed journals.
