Despite debate as to its usefulness, the journal impact factor remains the key statistic gleaned from the journal citation report. An analysis of trends in nuclear medicine impact factors is yet to be reported in the literature. Moreover, the relationship between impacts factors and the other indices contained in the journal citation report are complex and seldom considered in interpreting the implication of impact factors in decision making. The 2006 journal citation report showed that nuclear medicine journals have demonstrated a trend towards increased impact factors. The J Nucl Med has continued its dominance as the most highly ranked nuclear medicine journal.
