Abstract

On January 11, 2019, we learned from Clarivate Analytics (former Thomson Reuters Intellectual Property and Science Business) that Annals of Palliative Medicine has met the high bar for inclusion and has become indexed in Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE). Articles published since 2016 will be indexed. With this, Annals of Palliative Medicine is expected to have its first official impact factor by around June of 2019. Annals of Palliative Medicine is an open-access, international, peer-reviewed journal that aims to provide up-to-date information and professional support for health care providers in palliative medicine disciplines to improve the quality of life for patients and their families and caregivers (1).
