Gut Pathogens has a new enhanced IF of 2.816!

June 21, 2016 Leave a comment

Gut Pathogens’ new IF  (2.816 in 2016) is now well ahead of other BMC journals such as BMC Infectious Diseases, BMC Microbiology, BMC Public Health, BMC Gastroenterology and BMC Cancer to name a few. Lets see how it helps us in getting more high quality submissions.
