ASHA Journals is pleased to announce the release of the 2022 Journal Impact Factors™ for four of our journals. These annual metrics from the Clarivate Analytics Journal Citation Reports™ help us convey the citation-based impact of the articles in our journals and evaluate other key indicators of how they are being used.

Consistently Growing Our Reach and Relevancy

We saw our biggest growth in the American Journal of Audiology, which now has a Journal Impact Factor™ (JIF) of 1.8 and a 5-year JIF of 2. Both of these are an increase over last year’s metrics, which you may recall were at a 5-year high, representing continued growth in the journal’s overall reach.

The American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology’s 2022 JIF is 2.6, with a 5-year JIF of 2.9. AJSLP had the highest immediacy index of ASHA’s journals, demonstrating the journal’s commitment to timely contributions.

Likewise, the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research also now has a 2022 JIF of 2.6 and a 5-year score of 2.9. These are the second-highest numbers the journal has received since 2017.

Finally, the latest JIFs for Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools are 2.4 for 2022 and 2.9 for the 5-year interval, both of which are an increase from last year’s data.

Celebrating our Impact

In addition to these measures of impact, article-level citation data from Dimensions and Scite can be found for all of our journals on the individual article pages. You can use these tools to see both total and recent citations, as well as information on whether the citations support, contrast, or simply mention the article.

Our updated impact metrics highlight the important work that authors, reviewers, and editors contribute to ASHA’s journals. We’d like to thank all those individuals who help ensure ASHA members have access to leading research that is making a difference, and we look forward to highlighting the continued growth in visibility and use of these essential resources.
