Reaching new heights: Intensive Care Medicine journal

Reaching new heights: Intensive Care Medicine journal The Impact factor of ESICM’s flagship journal ICM has increased to 5.399 in 2011 (from 4.996 in 2010) and is ranked third in a list of 20 journals devoted to intensive care medicine. In the Thematic session “ICM: Year in Review” Editor-In-Chief Massimo Antonelli will give a detailed overview of the current state of the journal and reflect on more than 12 years of editorial experience at ICM.

After six years at the healm of the journal, Antonelli will end his mandate as Editor-In-Chief on January 31st 2013 and hand over the post to recently-appointed EIC Elie Azoulay. During his presentation, he will describe the challenges of the competitive nature of scientific publishing and note the successes of recent years, including building a strong editorial team.?Always one to offer a frank assessment of the situation at hand, Antonelli will take this rare opportunity to speak about the personal sacrifices and rewards of dedicating more than a decade to the editorial side of intensive care in addition to his clinical and research duties.

“Leading a scientific journal can be arduous at times—but, it is also one of the most intensely satisfying experiences to know that what you publish can drive practice and stimulate discussion about important subjects and research in the field.” (Massimo Antonelli)

Highlights from the journal will also be central to his talk- especially the recent publication of the Berlin Definition of ARDS. Editors from the journal will round out the session by updating participants on the key articles published on various specialised topics over the last year— making this a truly unmissable session.
