Citations to Retrovirology articles continue to trend positively

We and others have made the point that a much better measure of scientific importance is reflected in actual citation numbers rather than in the often difficult to understand term “Impact Factor” (see ).  Accordingly, it is informative to consider periodically how total citations to Retrovirology as a journal stack up.  Below, you will see a graph of data captured from ISI Web of Science tabulating annual citations to Retrovirology from 2005 to November 20, 2009.  Please keep in mind that there is a bit more than a month remaining in 2009, so the final number for 2009 will be higher.  Nevertheless, the slope of annual citations to Retrovirology articles continues in 2009 in an encouragingly positive manner.
