Evolutionary Biology Impact Factors

Just came across the 2007 impact factors for evolutionary biology journals. I think these are only recently available? Anyway no great surprises I guess, but good to see that MBE and Syst Biol are doing so well

  1. TRENDS ECOL EVOL 14.79
  2. ANNU REV ECOL EVOL S 10.340
  3. SYSTEMATIC BIOL 8.802
  4. MOL BIOL EVOL 6.438
  5. MOL ECOL 5.169
  6. CLADISTICS 4.642
  7. AM NAT 4.543
  8. EVOLUTION 4.502
  9. BMC EVOL BIOL 4.091
  10. MOL PHYLOGENET EVOL 3.994

Of course impact factors are a tiny part of judging good science, but for those of us in the UK whose careers are periodically assessed by our colleagues using only a hazy interpretation of Impact Factors, stats like this are good to know.
