The International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care (IJTAHC) is part of the so-called Cambridge Core, the “home of academic content” (1). As such, not surprisingly, it is judged by standard scientific standards such as the Journal’s Impact Factor (IF). Although on the rise, there is still significant room for improvement (2). In this Editorial, I will discuss the relevance of the IF to the Journal and offer some suggestions as to how it might be given new impetus. I will conclude by briefly discussing some challenges associated with assessing impact in the context of health technology assessment (HTA).
