Proteomics journals by Impact Factor

I must be preparing some publications because I keep looking up the stupid impact factors of proteomics journals.  To save both of us time, I just wrote a bunch of them down.  I didn't check to see which system is used, because we all know that every journal is going to use the metric that favors them the most.  This list is very incomplete and I can't verify all of the sources, but it could be a useful starting point.

Molecular and Cellular Proteomics:  7.4
Journal of Proteomics Research:  5.1
Proteomics (Wiley):  4.5
Expert Reviews Proteomics:  3.7
Proteins and Proteomics:  2.9
Proteome Science:  2.3
Journal of Proteomics and Bioinformatics: ?
Open Proteomics:  2.0?
Genomics, Proteomics & Bioinformatics:  1.0

If anyone has more information they'd like to contribute, please let me know!  I know there are more journals out there (particularly internationally!) and I'd love to have a more comprehensive list.


  1. Journal of Proteomics (Elsevier) - 4.8

  2. The second journal mentioned "Journal of Proteomics Research" is a mistake, I suppose. There is a journal named "Journal of Proteome Research" which has a current impact factor of 5.056. I would request you to correct it if I am not wrong. Thank you for the information by the way!


  3. you forgot "International Journal of Proteomics" IF 4.62 in 2013

  4. Any idea what the predicted impact factor of 'Proteomes' will be?
