Department of Anesthesiology

Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology (JNA)

cover of Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology

SUNY Downstate's Department of Anesthesiology is also the home of the Editorial Office of the Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology (JNA).

Started in 1988 by Dr. James E. Cottrell (Editor-in-Chief) and Dr. John Hartung (Associate Editor), JNA has become the preeminent subspecialty journal in anesthesiology.

Each year, between the online site at Ovid and the journal's web site (please visit at, JNA receives about 170,000 visits, 30,000 full text article views and 300,000 page hits. These new metrics (remember when we used to talk about subscriptions?) accord well with a citation rate (Impact Factor) that has, in recent years, placed JNA 6th or 7th among 22 journals grouped under anesthesiology. Indeed, discounting pain journals (because most of their readers, and so most of their citations, come from other specialties), JNA often has the 3rd or 4th highest citation rate in anesthesiology.

Not bad for a subspecialty journal!
