When considering the discipline of travel medicine, it is interesting to note how the Journal of Travel Medicine has risen to become not only a key journal in its directly relevant field, but also as an important periodical of general medicine. While this is undoubtedly an impressive achievement there are still many challenges ahead. Arguably,the first of these will be maintaining an internationally competitive academic journal with a respectable impact factor.
