Journal of Addiction Medicine's (JAM) 2021 impact factor increased to 4.647, nearly a full point over 2020's score of 3.702, according to Clarivate's 2021 Journal Performance Data released in June 2022. This increase moves JAM's ranking from #10 to #7 within the 21 journals in Clarivate's “Substance Abuse" category.
