We are pleased to announce to our readers that Translational Lung Cancer Research (TLCR) has attained its first impact factor for the 2018 citation year: 4.806 (Figure 1).
The impact factor, as published in the annual Journal Citation Reports (JCR), is a calculation determined based on the number of citations accumulated in 2018 for manuscripts published in 2016 and 2017.
Translational Lung Cancer Research is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal indexed by Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and PubMed/PubMed Central, focusing on cutting-edge development on the transition from preclinical to clinical research, including but not limited to multimodality therapy, markers, imaging, tumor biology, pathology, chemoprevention, and technical advances related to lung cancer and relevant thoracic diseases.
The release of the journal’s first impact factor is not only a significant achievement for the journal, but it is also the beginning of developing a more significant scientific reach. Here, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our Editorial Team Members, Guest Editors, authors, and reviewers for their significant contributions. We look forward to the continuous cooperation with all the above mentioned and those who are interested in translational lung cancer research to bring more exciting content to readers in the coming future.
