New Impact Factor for Annals of Cardiothoracic Surgery

I am delighted to announce that the Annals of Cardiothoracic Surgery (ACS) has received its 2019 Journal Impact Factor of 3.058. This excellent result places the ACS as the fourth most highly ranked journal dedicated to cardiothoracic surgery.

This Journal Impact Factor reflects ACS’ drive for best clinical evidence through comprehensive systematic reviews/meta-analyses in all aspects of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery; a commitment to surgical education through highly-cited keynote lectures, multimedia videos and detailed illustrative articles; and a vision for global impact, achieved by working closely with our esteemed Editors and Authors.

The interplay of best clinical evidence, surgical education and global impact makes the ACS the leading contemporary surgical journal, setting it apart from traditional journal formats.

We look forward to continuing our work with you in delivering the most comprehensive and educational resource to the cardiothoracic community.
