The impact factor of NIAAA’s peer-reviewed scientific journal, Alcohol Research & Health (AR&H), has increased to number 6 among all addiction-related journals indexed by ISI Web of Knowledge, Journal Citation Reports (JCR). Compiled for year 2008 and released in June 2009, JCR’s data show that AR&H’s impact factor rose to the 6th position from its 16th-place rank in 2007. Impact factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to articles published in science and social science journals. In the number-one position was Addiction Biology, the journal of the Society for the Study of Addiction.
