We took over as editors three years ago. During that time, work for the journal has become increasingly busy and rewarding. As editors we are pleased to report that over the past year Sexually Transmitted Infections has continued to flourish as a high quality specialty journal.1,2
A major highlight of the last year has been the increase in the journal’s impact factor from 1.732 in 2003 to 2.204 in 2004 (table 1). The impact factor published in 2005 is based on the number of citations in 2004 divided by the number of original papers and reviews published in Sexually Transmitted Infections in 2002 and 2003. Sexually Transmitted Infections is now the highest ranked specialist journal in this field in terms of impact factor, and for the first time is ahead of Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
