Hi Maria Elena,

I don't see an Impact Factor on the journal's homepage (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-cardiology-cases/) so it may not have one. But I'll check with the journal's publisher at Elsevier.

Dear Ms. Maria Elena Soto,

Thank you for your inquiry.

Journal of Cardiology Cases currently does not have Impact Factor.

Since there is no Impact Factor listed on the journal homepage, it may not have one. But I'm going to check with the publisher to confirm this.
