Making an impact: FEBS Open Bio celebrates its 3rd anniversary
This month marks the third anniversary of the launch of FEBS Open Bio, the newest member of the FEBS journal family – see the Editorial in FEBS Letters or The FEBS Journal to learn about FEBS Open Bio's development, aims and scope.
We are pleased to announce that Thomson Reuters has recently accepted the journal for indexing in Science Citation Index Expanded (accessed through Web of Science), Biological Abstracts and BIOSIS Previews. Inclusion in Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition means that FEBS Open Bio will receive an Impact Factor for 2014 in the summer of 2015.
As the 2014 volume closes, FEBS Open Bio has already published over 250 articles. We look forward to an even busier 2015 and hope that you will consider FEBS Open Bio when looking to publish your next paper.
