Projected Impact Factor 2016 for JMIR Mental Health

(Toronto, 4 Dec 2017) We expect JMIR Mental Health to receive a first formal impact factor for 2017, to be released in mid 2018, but in the meantime we calculated a projected impact factor 2016, which can be calculated in 2017.

The 2016 impact factor of a journal can be calculated as follows (Wikipedia):

2016 impact factor = A/B


A = the number of times that all items published in that journal in 2014/15 were cited by indexed publications during 2016.
B = the total number of "citable items" published by that journal in 2014/15.

We are proud to report that the projected impact factor for JMIR Mental Health (2016) is 2.96, calculated from 80 (citations in 2016) / 27 (citable published articles 2014-2015).

This confirms that JMIR Mental Health is going to be a leading journal in the field.
