From Sadis Matalon, Editor in Chief, American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology
Dear Associate Editors, Consulting Editors, Editorial Board Members, Guest Editors and Contributors,
I am delighted to tell you that our 2015 Impact Factor has increased to 4.721. This makes the American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology the highest impact journal publishing basic and translational research articles, reviews and perspectives on all aspects of pulmonary biology In addition, our number of submissions has increased steadily during the last three years. I am grateful to our Associate Editors for their time and effort in selecting reviewers and carefully summarizing their comments in a succinct plan which informs authors of what they need to do for their manuscript to be considered for publication. My most sincere thanks to our Managing Editor, Ms. Amy McEver, who makes sure that reviews are submitted on time and keeps the journal functioning very efficiently. Many thanks to the Editorial Board members and guest reviewers for their service to our journal and the pulmonary community. These days, everybody has too many grants to write and finding additional time to review manuscripts is not an easy task. Nevertheless the reviews are of the highest quality and usually on time (Amy makes sure of this). Finally, my thanks to all contributors who trusted us with their manuscripts. It is my hope that the review process always improves the quality of the science and increases its impact.
My promise is that we will spare no effort to keep on increasing the quality and impact of the American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology. We welcome your submissions as well as your thoughts of how to reach new heights.
With best regards
