Impact Factors: "Parasites & Vectors" + "Plant Methods"

Open access publisher BioMed Central has announced that two of its journals, Parasites & Vectors and Plant Methods, have been accepted for tracking by Thomson Reuters (vendors of ISI Web of Science) and will both receive "Impact Factors" in 2010.

Parasites & Vectors expands upon the scope of two former BioMed Central publications, Kinetoplastid Biology and Disease and Filaria Journal, both of which ceased publication in December 2007. Launched in January 2008, the journal has rapidly become an authoritative home for research in parasitology, reflected by its acceptance for tracking by Thomson Reuters from its first issue."

"Launched in 2005, Plant Methods encompasses all aspects of technological innovation in the plant sciences. The journal seeks to stimulate the development and adoption of new and improved techniques and research tools and, where appropriate, to promote consistency of methodologies for better integration of data from different laboratories."

"These journals bring to a total of 71 BioMed Central journals that are tracked by Thomson Reuters and either have or are on course to receive an Impact Factor."
