Journal impact factor highest ever at 3.853

ISUOG News: 18 June 2015


The impact factor for Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology (UOG) is the highest it's ever been and is a reflection of the broadening range of clinically relevant content published each month. In particular, UOG is publishing more content on non-invasive prenatal diagnosis and related technologies, publishing a special open access issue on the topic in January 2015.

UOG is now ranked 6th out of 79 journals in obstetrics and gynecology and is considered the leading peer-reviewed international journal on imaging in obstetrics and gynecology.

Published monthly, readers can gain insight into current developments in the field, both from a technical and patient-management perspective. Regular Opinion, Referee Commentary and Correspondence columns provide a forum for debate and exchange of ideas on all aspects of the discipline.

Below is a list of the most highly cited articles, published in 2012-2013 that have contributed to the increase in impact factor. All of the articles below are open access.
