A letter to the board members to inform them JMS IF

Dear colleagues, 

June is a hot month in many parts of the world, it is also a hot month for journal editors and many authors. Impact Factor (IF) is usually released in June. Yesterday I saw  many editors' zealotry and excitement when their SCI-Indexed journals' impact factors have greatly increased and their journal rankings have climbed to a new height.  JMS's impact factor  increases a little from last year's 1.135 to present year's 1.423, and the journal ranking also climbes a little from 22.1% to 24.2%.  Our progress in the IF and the ranking is not so satisfactory yet. 

Yes, impact factor is one of the important factors that we should pay special attention to. However it is only a figure to show that one journal got higher cites and probably it has published better papers compared with other journals. Sometimes it is also an easy to manipulate figure!

No matter how, to publish best manuscripts, to provide better service just as Mr. James Testa said, is important elements to increase journal IF  and is what journal editors should persistently stick to! 

We have only made slight progress in IF, but most importantly I think we have disseminated academic research and publication philosophy among scholars and graduate students via scientific writing workshops and on the social media.  Thus I believe the good public reputation will reward us more in the upcoming years!

Thank you all for submitting high quality manuscripts to JMS and give active and concrete support to the journal in many aspects. That is the important impetus for the journal progress!

All the best
