In the newly announced journal Impact Factor last week, we are pleased to see Clinical Proteomics received its impressive initial Impact Factor of 3.476. This puts Clinical Proteomics as one of nine proteomics journals that currently have official Impact Factors. Clinical Proteomics has special emphasis on promoting novel scientific research in the field of translational proteomics. This vision is in harmony with the theme of Human Proteome Organization (HUPO). For this reason, there were no surprises to see that Clinical Proteomics and HUPO have long shared members and journal board meetings have often taken place during the annual HUPO congresses. The Editor-in-chief of the Journal, Dr. Daniel Chan, is a founding member of HUPO and the recipient of the inaugural HUPO Translational proteomics Award. The editorial team includes many HUPO members and leaders, including Mark Baker, Christoph Borchers, Bruno Domon, Samir Hanash, Fuchu He, Stanley Hefta, Jacob Kagan, Jashua LaBaer, Gilbert Omenn, Young-Ki Paik, Akhilesh Pandey, Peipei Ping, Henry Rodriguez, Richard Semba, Michael Siu, Richard Smith, Mike Snyder, Sudhir Srivastava, Jennifer van Eyk, Marc Wilkins, Hui Zhang, and many others. Clinical Proteomics welcomes manuscript contributions by HUPO members and Human Proteome Project (HPP) contributors.
“I am looking forward to working with you all at HUPO to promote clinical proteomics research and publications.” -Dr. Daniel Chan, Editor-in-chief, Clinical Proteomicshttps://clinicalproteomicsjournal.biomedcentral.com/
