The editors-in-chief of JPGN take great pleasure in announcing the 2011 impact factor for JPGN, the highest in the last 12 years: 2.298. We wish to thank all who have contributed to the success of the journal. Specifically, thank you to the following:

1. Our reviewers, for sharing their expertise and for their commitment in aiding authors with their valuable comments and critiques

2. Senior and junior investigators and other authors, who bring their latest research and observations to JPGN, enabling publication of their articles for others to benefit and advance our science and knowledge

3. Our associate editors, for their dedicated and diligent work and for setting aside their precious time and energy to help facilitate the peer review process and setting the high standards for the journal

4. Our editorial boards’ and societies’ (ESPGHAN/NASPGHAN) leadership and committees, for their ongoing support and advice in a myriad of journal operations

5. A special thanks is reserved for our loyal readers. We strive to continue providing them with high-quality articles and important guidelines in the fields of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition.

The quantity and quality of the submissions received have steadily increased. In the last year, we received nearly 1000 new manuscripts. We have seen a marked and welcome increase in readership and authorship from countries not previously involved in JPGN. We intend to remain on the cutting edge, expanding areas of popularity, including Rapid Communications, Original Articles, and Guidelines for our readership.
