Impact factor has been updated since this news item was released. To see the current impact factor visit the Evolutionary Bioinformatics homepage.
The official impact factor for Evolutionary Bioinformatics was recently updated by Thomson Reuters. It’s official impact factor is 2.684.
Impact factors are calculated based on the number of articles and citations in a journal, and are usually higher for serials which have been publishing for a longer time. For a journal only established in 2007, an impact factor this high is very impressive.
Evolutionary Bioinformatics's respectable impact factor was made possible by the fact that it is open access, meaning all articles are available online for anyone to read and download for free.
The widely respected editorial board and high quality peer review process have also helped to increase the number of citations and article views for Evolutionary Bioinformatics.
All articles published in Evolutionary Bioinformatics will benefit from high readership and citation rates backed up by the journal’s high impact factor.
This achievement for such a new journal was made possible by the extensive visibility we have established for Evolutionary Bioinformatics, indexing it in:
Chemical Abstracts Service
Chinese Electronic Periodical Service
Biology and Environmental Sciences
Current Contents/Life Sciences
Directory of Open Access Journals
EBSCO Academic Search Complete
Gale Academic OneFile
Gale Health Reference Centre
Gale InfoTrac Custom Journals

I must say publishing with Evolutionary Bioinformatics was a great and partially unexpected experience. It allowed me to understand the name 'Libertas Academica' is not just a name but a real issue. The reviewers offered us stringent, rigorous but totally unprejudiced comments, the editor supported us and the paper visibility was very good. Thank you again.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
