Powerful Impact in 2011


Excellent news for Biotechnology for Biofuels came with the 2011 edition of Thomson Reuters’ Journal Citation Reports, released on June 28th 2012. The Impact Factor for Biotechnology for Biofuels increased from 4.15 to 6.09, placing the journal at the top of the its field, with the highest impact of all specialist biofuel journals.  

The 2011 Impact Factor is calculated from the number of citations counted in 2011, to articles that were published in the journal during 2009 and 2010. Some of the most highly cited articles published in 2009 and 2010 are highlighted below:
