    • Description:
      CDC’s Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID)—a high-impact, open-access, peer-reviewed journal

      available at no cost to readers online and in print—publishes articles that discuss disease emergence, prevention, and elimination. With its December 2018 issue, EID passed a landmark—publication of its 10,000th article since its launch in 1995. This 2019 Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal Report highlights key metrics and activities that show EID is successfully reaching its core public health audiences.

      Several metrics reveal how valuable the journal’s content is for readers. First, EID’s online page views exceeded 8,413,483 in 2018. Second, EID’s most recent journal impact factor score* of 7.42, based on how often its articles are cited in other scientific literature, ranked first among open-access journals and fourth among all 88 infectious disease journals tracked. Third, EID’s content, available from PubMed Central, the United States National Library of Medicine’s digital repository, was accessed 3,427,212 times—up 420,626, from 2018 and a ninefold increase since 2009, the first year those data were available.

      Also notable in 2018 was the media attention the journal received for its use of artwork on its covers as a means to connect art and health, and to humanize the content. Another news story highlighted EID’s series of more than 250 podcasts.
