According to the annual citation report of the renown bibliographic database Web of Science, the Journal obtained in 2020 an impact factor of 1.46, doubling it compared to 2019. Likewise, the 2021 impact factor doubled again to 2.84.

The impact factor is an indicator that reflects the average number of citations received by each article published during the previous two years, reflecting the quality and relevance of a journal among the international scientific community.

This achievement comes in the midst of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Journal, created in May 1922 when the Member States of the Pan American Health Organization approved the establishment of a periodical specialized in public health issues as a tool to strengthen cooperation between countries through the dissemination of scientific evidence.

The journal thanks the authors, reviewers and readers for their continued support.
