The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology is a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal covering research on allergy and immunology. It is one of two official journals of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology.[1] The journal was established in 1929 as the Journal of Allergy and obtained its current name in 1971.[2][3] The name change was purportedly related to a change in the attitude among physicians about the breadth of applicability of the term "allergy".[4] The journal has been published under the Mosby imprint since its inception.[2][3]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2015 impact factor of 12.485, ranking it first out of 25 in the category "Allergy"[5] and 5th out of 150 in the category "Immunology".[6] As of 2014, this journal was the most cited of any in the allergy/immunology medical specialty.[7]

The editors-in-chief are Cezmi A. Akdis and Zuhair K. Ballas, who succeeded Donald Y.M. Leung (11997-2015) in 2016.[8]
