On behalf of the authors, readers, and our editorial board members, I wholeheartedly thank the reviewers for their contribution to publishing the Journal of Yeungnam Medical Science (JYMS) in 2022. We could not publish JYMS without the dedication of the reviewers, who have put considerable time and effort into the meticulous review process. Authors are mainly accountable for the quality of their articles, but they cannot do it alone. Reviewers play tremendous roles in improving the quality of articles by assessing the manuscript and providing helpful suggestions.

After changing the journal title from “Yeungnam University Journal of Medicine” to “Journal of Yeungnam Medical Science” in 2022, JYMS has continued to move forward as an academic platform for general medicine in Korea. In addition, the international influence of JYMS has dramatically grown. JYMS received 136 manuscript submissions in 2022, with 81 (59.6%) from Korea and 55 (40.4%) from foreign countries (Fig. 1).

Bibliometric statistics for the total citations are presented in Fig. 2 and Supplementary Table 1. Authors from 14 countries submitted articles. The submissions from overseas researchers dramatically increased from 13 (10.2%) in 2020 to 55 (40.6%) in 2022. The readership has expanded to 117 countries according to the access statistics in 2022 (Fig. 3). The number of total citations continuously increased. In 2022, JYMS was cited 295 times in the Crossref metadata, 245 times in Scopus, and 230 times in the Web of Science Core Collection. The manually calculated impact factor in Web of Science increased from 0.317 in 2020 to 1.274 in 2022 (135 citations 2020 to 2021/106 documents 2020 to 2021; calculated on January 2, 2023). The CiteScore manually calculated by Scopus increased from 0.25 in 2020 to 1.02 in 2022 (203 citations 2019 to 2022/199 documents 2019 to 2022; calculated on January 2, 2023). The overall acceptance rate decreased from 55.1% in 2020 to 44.6% in 2022 for submitted manuscripts. JYMS will steadily grow towards becoming a prestigious journal in general medicine. To achieve this, JYMS plans to invite active researchers from all over the world as reviewers in the near future.
