eCM Journal

eCM Journal (Eur Cell Mater) provides an interdisciplinary forum for publication in the musculoskeletal field (Trauma, Maxillofacial (including dental), Spine and Orthopaedics) of preclinical research, including the field of tissue engineering & regenerative medicine. eCM Journal is published by AO Research Institute Davos, a Not-for-Profit foundation in Switzerland.


The 2016 Thompson Reuters Journal Citation Reports (JCR) Impact factor for eCM, is again wrong. The corrected metrics can be seen in the JCR Help file. Unfortunately these metrics will only be entered into the full JCR in September.
Journal Impact Factor: 4.000, 5-Year Impact Factor: 5.182.
Additionally, the eCM council decided in June 2017 to discontinue and remove all old supplements published in eCM journal. This decision was based upon the unfortunate situation that randomly since 2013 eCM conference abstract supplements were being used in the JCR / Clarivate Analytics calculation of eCM journal's impact factor. This has wrongly caused a drop of eCM's 2016 Impact Factor from 4.633 to 4.000 due to this situation. We are still in discussions with JCR / Clarivate Analytics to solve this miscalculation. All abstracts that were hosted as supplements on eCM journal are being remade without any reference to eCM journal, without eCM's ISSN number, without reference sections and each combined into 1 PDF for oral and 1 for poster. The remade abstracts are being hosted on a newly created ecmconferences site.
