We are proud to announce that the impact factor for BJR,the flagship journal of the British Institute of Radiology, has risen from 2.196 to 3.039 which represents an increase of 38%. This is its highest ever impact factor ranking in the 125 year old history of the journal, reflecting the high quality of articles research submitted over the last two years.
The ranking for DMFR (the journal Dentomaxillofacial Radiology, which is published by the BIR) has also risen from 1.796 to 2.419 – the first time the impact factor has been above 2 (a rise of 35%).
The impact factor is a measure of the average number of citations of articles published in the previous two years.

Dr Sri Redla, President of the BIR said “This is fantastic news and reflects the commitment and dedication of our volunteer editors, reviewers and the team at the BIR who work so hard to ensure the journal publishes high quality content.”
