    Dear Sir:
    First of all, congratulations to BioMedCentral for these news and to the editors of the Journals that improved its impact factor as well as the journals that obtain it for the first time.
    I would like to know why Cerebrospinal Fluid Research has no an official impact factor.
    Ishould be glad to receive the answer at my email: adorta@infomed.sld.cu
    Many thanks and best regards,
    Dr. Alberto J Dorta-Contreras

    Can you send me an analysis of how your unofficial impact factors compared with the new official impact factors for the 17 journals that just got official impact factors?

  • saravana kumar

    Please let me know the IF of cancer cell international according to 2009 release

  • mann eva

    Since several years I wonder why
    BMC Geriatrics has not yet got an
    impact factor. (I already published
    three times in that journal).

    What and where are the difficulties.

    Best regards
    eva
