The Ripple Effect of AHA/ASA Journals
- Innovation sparked
- Novel science shared
- Advances in patient care implemented
In nature, just as each dropped stone has a ripple effect expanding outward, the ripples eventually come back to their place of origin. In the world of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular publishing, that place of origin is AHA/ASA Journals.
World-renowned for research that commands influence and respect while serving science and society, the 12 American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) Journals advance the rate of innovation in their respective fields and the application of the latest science into clinical practice.
As an author, you must consider your splash and the wake you leave in the field. From reputation and discoverability to reach and exposure, the 12 AHA/ASA Journals offer the impact you need to influence cardiovascular and stroke medicine today—and tomorrow.

|Journal||Total Cites in 2016†||5-Year Impact Factor†||Impact Factor†||Eigenfactor® Score†||Article Influence® Score†|
*Based on 2016 metrics calculated by HighWire Press, Wolters Kluwer, or Wiley.
†2016 Journal Citation Reports (Clarivate Analytics, 2017).
The total number of times that a journal was cited by all Thomson Reuters indexed journals in 2016.
5-Year Impact Factor
The average number of times articles from the journal published in the past 5 years have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports® year (here, it's 2016). It shows an average citation rate per article for the past 5 years.
Average number of times articles from the journal published in the past 2 years have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports® year (here, it's 2016). It shows an average citation rate per article for the past 2 years.
Like the Impact Factor, the Eigenfactor® Score uses citation data to assess and track the influence of a journal in relation to other journals.
The Eigenfactor® Score calculation is based on the number of times articles from the journal published in the past 5 years have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports® year (here it's 2016), BUT it also considers which journals have contributed these citations so that highly cited journals will influence the network more than lesser cited journals.
References from one article in a journal to another article from the same journal are removed, so that Eigenfactor® Scores are not influenced by journal self-citation.
Article Influence® Score
Like the Impact Factor, the Article Influence® Score uses citation data to assess and track the influence of a journal in relation to other journals.
The Article Influence® Score determines the average influence of a journal's articles over the first 5 years after publication. It is calculated by dividing a journal's Eigenfactor® Score by the number of articles in the journal, normalized as a fraction of all articles in all publications. It is a ratio of a journal's citation influence to the size of the journal's article contribution over a period of 5 years.
