Congratulations to the FBR editors and authors!
Our publisher, SAGE, has let us know that the 2018 Journal Citation Reports® have been released with great results for our journal, Family Business Review (FBR). The journal increased its Impact Factor this year from 3.824 to 6.188 and is now ranked 13 out 147 in Business. Ahead of Harvard Business Review! And the highest Impact Factor FBR has had in its 30+ year history.
The impact factor of an academic journal is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in that specific journal. It is often used as a metric for the relative importance and/or impact of a journal within its field. Journals with higher impact factors are therefore noted to be more important and influential than those with lower impact factors. The journal Impact Factor is the average number of times articles from the journal published in the past two years have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) year. Journal Impact Factors are released annually by Clarivate’s Journal Citation Reports.
