Small's Star in the Ascendant

We were delighted to learn recently of some more evidence that underlines the progress that Small is making in the nano and micro arena. Thomson Scientific publish a resource known as their Essential Scientific Indicators, which provides a quantitative analysis of the many thousands of journals that are listed in their indexes. Small was added to this list at the end of 2006, and it is greatly encouraging to discover that by March of this year we had been granted "Rising Star" status in the Materials Science category; such status is given to those journals (in 22 categories) that obtain the highest percentage increase in citations over a given time period (see here for details). Furthermore, the most recent results (for May 2007) continue to rank Small as the Rising Star in Materials Science. As ever, we are grateful to all of our authors and readers for ensuring that the excellent research in Small is cited so prodigiously.
