5 More of BioMed Central's Journals to be Tracked by ISI

BioMed Central has announced that five more of its portfolio of independent journals will be tracked by Thomson Scientific, and will be assigned official impact factors in 2010. The five journals are: Environmental Health, International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, Journal of Neuroinflammation, Lipids in Health and Disease and Virology Journal. (Already all BioMed Central journal articles are tracked by Scopus and Google Scholar, enabling authors to see how often their research has been cited).
From BioMed Central's Blog:

The acceptance of these titles for tracking by Thomson Scientific reflects their growing prominence and reputation in their respective fields, and is a strong endorsement of their achievement to date. We have calculated unofficial 2006 impact factors for each of these journals, based on Thomson Scientific citation data, and this demonstrates that they already have an impressive citation rate.

Environmental Health - Unofficial Impact Factor 2.10
International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity - Unofficial Impact Factor 3.06
Journal of Neuroinflammation - Unofficial Impact Factor 4.36
Lipids in Health and Disease - Unofficial Impact Factor 1.38
Virology Journal - Unofficial Impact Factor 1.94

BioMed Central's growing independent journal portfolio consists of 109 titles which span the whole of biology and medicine. 21 of these journals are already tracked by Thomson ISI, and we look forward to seeing many more independent journals being accepted for tracking in the near future.
