Impact Factor Collection


Endocrine-Related Cancer journal impact factor graphic

Endocrine-Related Cancer’s 2019 Impact Factor has risen to 4.800, with the five-year measure now standing at 5.129.

This increase in Impact Factor reflects the high-quality research identified by the Editorial Board. The journal now ranks 25 out of 143 journals in the Endocrinology and Metabolism category, and 70 out of 244 in the Oncology category.

We extend our thanks profusely to the world-class Editors, authors and reviewers who make the journal what it is, and to Editor-in-Chief Professor Charis Eng for her leadership.

To recognise the new Impact Factor, the Editorial Team has put together a collection of articles that received the most citations in 2019, and contributed to this positive result.

All articles are freely available without subscription.
