The Lancet HIV



The Lancet HIV launched in September 2014 as an exclusively online journal, publishing original research, expert commentary, informative editorials, and timely correspondence. The monthly journal provides readers with context and insight into the clinical advances and practice-changing research shaping the study of HIV/AIDS today. Now is a critical moment in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Despite the world view that the end of AIDS may be within reach, the job of controlling this epidemic is certainly not done. As HIV disease evolves to become a chronic infection, the interaction of the virus with other chronic conditions will present a host of new challenges. The Lancet HIV is a journal for a new era in the history of HIV/AIDS. The Lancet HIV builds on The Lancet journals' reputation for publishing HIV/AIDS research to provide a reliable foundation for advocacy and for programmatic and political change. We will consider clinical, epidemiological, operational, and implementation research, unifying these disciplines across a single vision for the health of those living with HIV.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2021 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.Here you can check the journal performance trends based on last 20 years of data, also check the latest journal citation reports 2021. Also Check H-Index, SCImago journal rank and journal impact factor 2021.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

The Lancet HIV


The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications


The Lancet HIV

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
