Editor's Note 2015

Paolo Martelletti

The news worth of sharing is the release of the Impact Factor 2014 by JCR that showed a realignment to the previous values, 2.801.

Many evaluations can be done, but I will focus on two points: in this awesome roller-coaster TJHP has maintained the second position between the area journals dedicated to headache. The Gaussian curve of citations shows an absence of monoclonal peaks. This means that the 2014 IF value is not supported by a strong major pillar but from many small ones, a predictive sign of a diffuse good performance and a low risk of falls in the next windows of evaluations by JCR. The low percentage of self-citations supports this critical analysis.

Innovative interesting initiatives are in the pipeline and we will be able to confirm our competitors’ attitude shortly.

We have overcome the phases of animosity, astonishment, fondness. It is now time to strengthen the feeling of respect.
