Our partial impact factor* (IF) has increased from last year to 1.547! This is an amazing 50% increase on last year. As this is only a partial impact factor** we expect next year’s IF to be even higher, so watch this space for more good news this time next year.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our authors, readers and referees who have contributed towards this success. And of course a giant thank you to the Editorial and Advisory Boards for all their hard work and dedication to the journal!

*The IF provides an indication of the average number of citations per paper. Produced annually, IFs are calculated by dividing the number of citations in a year, by the number of citeable articles published in the preceding two years.
**The IF for this year is still only a partial impact factor as only 3 issues were published in 2009.
