Angewandte Chemie Sky-High
For the first time in its publishing history, Angewandte Chemie has received a double-digit journal impact factor from ISI: 10.232 (2006; 2005: 9.596). Roughly speaking, the impact factor is the ratio of citations and published articles in the past two years. Angewandte Chemie maintains its status as the leading journal of its kind, leaving journals such as the Journal of the American Chemical Society (7.696; 2005: 7.419) or Chemical Communications (4.521; 2005: 4.426) far behind both in terms of the absolute value and relative growth. While the reviews in Angewandte Chemie do contribute to the journal's higher impact factor, it is not as much as commonly believed: Its impact factor is much higher than the combined impact factors of e.g. J. Am. Chem. Soc. and Chem. Rev. or Chem. Commun. and Chem. Soc. Rev.
The editors extend their gratitude to authors, referees, and readers, as well as to the Members of its Boards and the German Chemical Society (GDCh) for their support. The team will keep working hard to bring customers the best chemistry journal.
