Journal of Investigative Dermatology’s Impact Factor Increases to 7.143

The Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) and European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR) are pleased to announce that the 2019 Impact Factor for the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (JID) is 7.143, up from the 2018 IF of 6.290.  The JID ranks 3rd of 71 journals in the Dermatology category, and it is the most highly cited Dermatology research journal.  In response to this news, Editor Mark C. Udey said, “I thank our authors, reviewers, and editors for their contribution to the increase in JID’s Impact Factor.  Their submissions, conscientious evaluation of submitted manuscripts, and guidance ensure JID’s excellence.”

The Impact Factor is reported by Journal Citation Reports™, published by Clarivate Analytics.  The Impact Factor is a measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year.

SID Leadership Response

“The leadership of the SID is delighted to see the continued success of the JID and congratulate the authors, reviewers, and the editors, including Dr. Mark Udey and Ms. Elizabeth Blalock, on continuing to bring forth impactful new skin research findings that support basic science and translate to improved patient care and outcomes.”

About the JID

The JID publishes high impact reports describing original research related to all aspects of cutaneous biology and skin disease. Descriptions of important findings that result from basic, translational, or clinical research are appropriate for submission. Clinical research can include, but is not limited to, interventional trials, genetic studies, epidemiology, and health services research.

The JID places a high priority on publication of new insights into basic cutaneous biology, disease pathogenesis and treatment. Reports that describe a new methodology, technique, or tool in combination with mechanistic insights into the problem that is being investigated are encouraged. It is possible that occasional descriptions of novel technology, methodology, or resources that are of special interest or utility to JID readers could be competitive for publication, even in the absence of new mechanistic insights.  For more information see

Original Articles that are of particular interest or potential importance can be subjected to FastTrack review that results in online publication of suitable submissions within 30 days of receipt.
