In July, PEC received its 2011 Impact Factor, which remained solid at 1.785. Prehospital Emergency Care (PEC) is now ranked 9th of the 24 Emergency Medicine journals that are currently rated by the ISI Web of Knowledge. PEC ranks 7th out of the 15 journals that have a 5-year impact factor (PEC 5-year Impact Factor is 1.682). We are ranked 69/157 Public, in the Environmental & Occupational Health category. PEC had an even more impressive Immediacy Index, which indicates how rapidly articles that are published in PEC are cited in the same year. PEC had an Immediacy Index of 0.459. This ranks PEC 4th out of the 24 EM journals that are ranked in terms of being rapidly cited. PEC continued to be placed ahead of such well-established journals as Journal of Emergency Medicine, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Emergency Medicine Clinics of North America, Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine, Journal of Emergency Nursing, and European Journal of Emergency Medicine.
The ISI Impact Factor system is not without critics, many of whom believe that the mysterious system if flawed. There are other services that rank journals' impact as well. SCOPUS has an alternative method. Its Scimago system produces an "H Index". By this method, PEC ranks 7th out of the 44 emergency medicine journals that are ranked by SCOPUS.
Our strategic plan is to continue to advance in ranking. In order to accomplish this, we will need the continued support of NAEMSP® members via submission of their best work to PEC.
We are pleased to announce the newly elected NAEMSP® Board of Directors who will serve from January 2013 – January 2015.
