The IET is delighted to announce that every title in the suite of 20 IET
Research Journals received fantastic impact factor news - with one journal
receiving an increase of 227%. The newest title in the portfolio (launched
too recently to receive an impact factor) also received great news - IET
Power Electronics (www.ietdl.org/IET-PEL) has been successful in its
application for inclusion in the Web of Science and as such will receive its
first impact factor in 2011. 

All research journals published by the IET are indexed in the prestigious
Thomson Reuters' Web of Science - the world's leading citation index with
multidisciplinary content from nearly 12,000 of the top tier international
and regional journals. Of the 2,500 journals submitted for consideration in
this database annually, only 10-12% are selected for inclusion.

Each journal in the Web of Science receives an "impact factor" score each
year in June - when Thomson Reuters publish their Journal Citation Report.
The impact factor is a measure of the number of citations within scientific
journals. It is used to gauge the relative importance of a scientific
journal within its field.

Daniel Smith, Head of Academic Publishing, at the IET said: "This is
gratifying news. Not only have we succeeded in increasing the impact factors
of all previously included titles across the portfolio, but also our two
most recently launched titles have also been accepted for inclusion. Despite
the continuing rapid expansion of journals publishing the market is
increasingly focussed on quality, and I think we can confidently say this
result is a validation of the excellence of IET Journals' content."

. IET Renewable Power Generation, a recently launched journal, received its
first impact factor of 1.255 this year.  
. IET Nanobiotechnology increased its impact factor by 27% from 1.638 to
2.077, IET Systems Biology now has an impact factor of 2.384, an increase of
19%.
. All journals saw an increase in impact factor on the 2009 figures with IET
Information Security more than trebling its score to 0.892.

A full list of the impact factor scores released in June 2010 is available
at: www.theiet.org/publishing/journals/recent/  

For more information on each journal and its impact factor visit the IET
Digital Library at www.ietdl.org. For details on how to submit research to
