Clarivate Analytics has released the 2018 Journal Citation Reports (JCR), and several IEEE Computer Society titles’ impact factors have increased significantly. IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI)’s impact factor jumped by 87.5 percent from 9.455 in 2017 to 17.73 in 2018, making it the highest impact factor of all IEEE Computer Society publications and the highest impact factor among its competitors.
Sven Dickinson, editor in chief of TPAMI, commented on this success: “I’m thrilled to see the jump in TPAMI’s impact factor, reflecting both the growing surge of interest in computer vision and machine learning research, and our community’s high regard for TPAMI as an elite research venue for such research. TPAMI has become one of the very top journals in all of computer science.”
