JCI Insight began publication in 2016 and will receive its first Impact Factor in mid-2019. Journal Citation Reports, published annually, provides Impact Factors based on the following calculation:

We encourage all readers to prioritize a journal based on their own evaluation of the work it publishes, regardless of whether it has an Impact Factor or the actual value of that metric.

Citation information for specific JCI Insight articles is available through various sources:
