Unofficial Impact Factor (IF) of 1.00

JPMS published 15 cite-able articles in 2011. To maintain high quality of the content, it came at the expense of a high rejection rate of 78%. The quality of content is being increasingly recognized by the academic contributors. To date, the journal has received 19 (11 external and 8 internal citations) from the peer reviewed scientific journals. For the year 2011, JPMS articles received 9 external citations and 6 internal citations (15 citations for 2011 articles/15 cite-able articles published in 2011=1.00 IF for 2011), which make the unofficial impact factor to be 1.00; highest for any journal from Pakistan and comparable to the prestigious journals from South Asia. JPMS team plans to work even harder to maintain and achieve a reasonable impact factor (IF).

We feel proud that JPMS has achieved such heights in such a short duration, thanks to the JPMS contributors and support from the scientific community across the globe.
