This is the 10th increase in 11 years and the highest Impact Factor of all general Rehabilitation journals according to the 2013 Journal Citation Reports just released. With 17,931 lifetime citations, ARCHIVES is the most-cited journal in Rehabilitation and has the highest Eigenfactor in the category.
We look forward to seeing you in Toronto!!
