Impact Factor: 2.394
BMJ Quality & Safety (previously Quality & Safety in Health Care) is an international peer review publication providing, news, opinion, debate and research for academics, clinicians and healthcare managers. It encourages innovation and creative thinking to improve the quality of health care and the science of improvement.
BMJ Quality & Safety received its first Impact Factor under its new title for 2012. However, due to the fact that the journal was only relaunched in January 2011, it is also still listed in the Journal Citation Reports under its former title Quality & Safety in Health Care.
