Artery Research celebrates its 13th year of publication since it was launched back in 2006. Artery Research is the official journal of the Association for Research into Arterial Structure and Physiology (ARTERY), with Elsevier as a subscription journal until Atlantis Press acquired it at the end of 2019. With the move to Atlantis Press as our publishing services provider, the journal will become open access. This move is important to ensure a wider dissemination to our readers and the scientific community globally.
This time last year I was writing, what I considered at the time, would probably be my last editorial as Editor in Chief of Artery Research; we had our ups and down despite achieving an impact factor. However, against the odds, I am extremely pleased to report that, like the phoenix, Artery Research has risen from the ashes! Atlantis Press has taken Artery Research into their portfolio. This in no small part due to the hard work and diligence of the Editorial Board in particular Pierre Boutouyrie, and I am deeply grateful for their efforts.
From the outset, Artery Research aimed to be an International, peer-reviewed journal focused on innovative scholarship and strategies to advance the understanding of arterial structure and physiology. This quarterly published journal is already an indispensable resource that promotes the advancement of knowledge and dissemination of information concerning the pathophysiology, epidemiology, detection, investigation and treatment of arterial structure and function.
At the hastily reassembled editorial Board at ARTERY 19 in Budapest a number of things became clear. The strategy is to publish the 2019 content as soon as possible. Therefore, in order to keep the risen phoenix flying high and strong I need you all to pull together and submit as many articles and reviews as possible and as soon as possible! With the rebirth of the Artery research as an open access journal, the fees of all accepted papers will be covered by the Association for Research into Arterial Structure and Physiology (ARTERY). Note that this is a promotional offer that applies to all papers submitted before 1 January 2020.
Since its inception, the journal editors and editorial board worked hard to ensure the journal was indexed in various outlets; Artery Research is already indexed in Clarivate’s Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE; one of the Web of Science core collections) and has a 2018 impact factor of 0.969. The journal is also indexed in Scopus with a 2018 CiteScore of 0.83.
I am convinced that the partnership with Atlantis Press will help us improve our visibility and metrics. Our Publisher is highly committed to supporting Artery Research going forward and I have no doubt that with their support we can improve our impact factor and move towards a Medline listing as quickly as possible.
As I outlined in what I thought was my last editorial, I am truly grateful for your support in the past and now hope that you will redouble your efforts to ensure that Artery research achieves the success it deserves as the outward sign of your highly successful ARTERY society.
