All Rise: Impact Factor Recalculation 
In late 2022, Clarivate Analytics, the firm responsible for Impact Factor calculations, re-evaluated Impact Factors for all journals it indexes. This recalculation led to a rise in Impact Factor for all three journals in the ASCPT Journal Family!

CPT’s new Impact Factor is 7.051, and it ranks 29th of all 279 journals in its category (Pharmacology & Pharmacy). PSP’s Impact Factor rose to 4.938, and its ranking rose 20 spots (now ranked 81/279 in the Pharmacology & Pharmacy category). CTS’s new Impact Factor is 4.516, making it the 64th ranked journal (of 140) in the Medicine, Research, & Experimental category. Congratulations to all three journals!
