Endocrine Connections' 2020 Impact Factor is the highest figure to date, rising above the three threshold to 3.335, with the five-year impact factor, a longer term measure of the impact of authors’ research, also increasing to 3.489. The journal now ranks 94 out of 145 in the Endocrinology and Metabolism category – a great achievement in only its fifth Impact Factor year.
