Path to Publish- Focus on Impact

The 2017 citation metrics have been released and The American Journal of Pathology is pleased to have shown an impact factor increase for the first time in the last few years. Improving the impact factor has been a priority for the Editors and staff, and moving up slightly to 4.069 (from 4.057 in 2016) reflects the improvements made to article selection and review article solicitation over the last couple years. Remember to look to AJP when sourcing your next article!
