Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (GIE) Impact Factor Grows Ten Percent from 2021

The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, along with its publisher Elsevier, is very proud to recognize GIE: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy for this week’s Clarivate Analytics’ announcement that GIE’s journal impact factor growth rating is 10.396. This represents a 10% growth increase from 2021 and is a testament to Michael Wallace, MD, MPH, FASGE GIE Editor-in-Chief, and his Associate Editor team. GIE, the official scientific publication of ASGE, is a premier endoscopy scientific publication in which researchers present their strong work for publication consideration. Each year, there are major influences on the journal impact factor. The continued expansion of early access content is one such influence and was incorporated into the count of citable items along with the continued influence of COVID-19 on scholarly publishing.  

GIE Editor-in-Chief Michael Wallace commented: “We are immensely proud to receive official recognition as the top-ranked endoscopy journal by impact factor. Beyond this specific measure, our core mission to be the most impactful journal in endoscopy. To do this, we publish the most relevant basic and advanced endoscopic research, educational content, editorials, and video content for GI endoscopists around the world.”

ASGE remains proud of the work published in GIE, representing its leadership in the GI endoscopy global community.   

About Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
Gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures allow the gastroenterologist to visually inspect the upper gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach and duodenum) and the lower bowel (colon and rectum) through an endoscope, a thin, flexible device with a lighted end and a powerful lens system. Endoscopy has been a major advance in the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. For example, the use of endoscopes allows the detection of ulcers, cancers, polyps and sites of internal bleeding. Through endoscopy, tissue samples (biopsies) may be obtained, areas of blockage can be opened and active bleeding can be stopped. Polyps in the colon can be removed, which has been shown to prevent colon cancer.
