  • Description:
    Preventing Chronic Disease (PCD) had its most successful year to date in 2022. The journal’s impact factor increased from 2.803 in 2020 to 4.354 in 2021, beating last year’s record for the biggest increase in PCD’s history. PCD’s overall rankings have improved in every category. PCD’s 5-year impact factor increased from 3.215 to 4.041. The journal ranked 4th out 30 US open-access journals and ranked 76th out of 585 journals worldwide in the Public Health, Environmental, and Occupational Health open-access journal category by Scimago. One of PCD’s major accomplishments this past year was reaching the top 10% of more than 27,0000 journals indexed by Scimago. PCD credits these successes to support from CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion leadership, along with the journal’s growing team of Associate Editors and its Editorial Board and Statistics Review Committee members, who are all committed to ensuring that PCD maintains a high bar in terms of the quality and integrity of its scientific content.
