A new impact factor of 3.495 has just been announced for Respirology – representing an astounding 25% increase on last year.

This pushes up the journal's ranking in the Respiratory System category and confirms Respirology's position as the top respiratory journal in the Asia-Pacific region.

The increase in impact factor is a result of more citations, which in turn is the "knock-on effect" of higher quality articles published.

Your published articles increase in their prestige as Respirology continues to be ranked higher and higher.

Maximize your visibility by publishing in this top-ranked journal.
