EASL journal JHEP Reports to receive its first impact factor in 2022

25 January 2022

It is with great pleasure that EASL announces that their first open-access journal JHEP Reports has been accepted into Clarivate’s Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and Journal Citation Reports. This means that the Journal will receive its first impact factor in the summer of 2022, only three years after the publication of its first issue in May 2019.

The impact factor is an important measure of the frequency with which the average article in a journal is cited in a given year, contributing to the standing of a journal within the scientific community.

JHEP Reports is an open access, online-only, companion title to the highly respected Journal of Hepatology. Its original aim was to provide a respected channel for the publication of innovative basic, translation and clinical studies in hepatology.

This major milestone is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the editorial team, JHEP Reports was developed to provide an alternative home for innovative research in hepatology and the acceptance of our Journal by Clarivate represents an important step towards this goal. The recently published, and novel, Patient Guideline is an excellent example of how the Journal is positioning itself for scientists, clinicians, and patients within a changing healthcare landscape,

said Editor-in-Chief of JHEP Reports, Prof. Jessica Zucman-Rossi.

EASL expresses its gratitude to all authors for submitting and entrusting the Journal with their research, to the reviewers who have given their time and expertise, and to the editorial team who steered the Journal to this wonderful achievement, showing the world that JHEP Reports is a key resource in the field of hepatology,

said EASL Secretary General Prof. Thomas Berg.


This is the start of another exciting phase for JHEP Reports. The ingenuity of our editorial team, the expertise of our reviewers and the quality of our authors’ research are continuing to enhance both the value and reputation of our Journal,

concluded Prof. Zucman-Rossi.
