JCC Impact Factor 2015 web

JCC Impact Factor 2015 increased by 5.6%: 6.585 

Dear ECCO Members, and past JCC authors and reviewers, 

On behalf of the JCC Editorial Team I would like to update you on our journal.

JCC has received its magnificent 2015 Impact Factor which now stands at 6.585, which represents again an increase on 2014 (5.6% increase) and places us once again as the eighth journal in the list of gastroenterology and hepatology journals. This achievement is once again a result of the appreciation of JCC as a top venue by authors in which to publish their work, our reviewers who have worked on behalf of the IBD community, the past Editor Miquel Gassull and his assistant Eduard Cabré, supported by the ECCO Office, our previous publisher Elsevier and also our new publisher since January 2015, Oxford University Press.

JCC continues to grow both in the number of articles that are submitted and the number published. In 2015 approximately 1,000 articles were submitted and this year the average days from submission to first editorial decision at JCC are 14.7 days.

I would like to thank you for your continued support of JCC, and I am confident that the journal will grow further and better serve the IBD community world-wide.

With best wishes,
Larry Egan

JCC is being published every month (12 issues per year) and covers the knowledge and science related to Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: The aims are to update, innovate and challenge.
