Heart Group 2019 Unofficial Impact Factor

We are proud to announce that our publisher Wiley has estimated our Group's 2019 Impact Factor to be 9.400 (2018 IF was 9.220). This is an unofficial metric, calculated by Wiley, the publisher of the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews which has the official 2019 Impact Factor of 7.890 (2018 IF was 7.755).  

Appearing top of the list in more than one metric (Top 10 most-accessed reviews in 2019 for the Heart Group and Top 10 Altmetric scores for Heart Group reviews published in 2019) was the popular review 'Mediterranean‐style diet for the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease'.

On a similar theme, our review 'Omega-3 fatty acids for the primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease' appeared at the top of the table for Top highest-cited reviews for the Heart Group in the 2019 JIF window (reviews that were published in 2017-2018 and cited in 2019), and a previously published version of the review also featured in the same table.

'Exercise-based rehabilitation for coronary heart disease' was our review that was cited the highest number of times in guidelines, at 44.
