A Virtual Issue of Mammal Review on the occasion of the 11th International Mammalogical Congress

11th International Mammalogical Congress 2013With this virtual issue, Mammal Review welcomes all participants to the International Mammalogical Congress 11 in Belfast and presents remarkable reviews published in the Journal since the last ICM in Mendoza 2009.

Mammal Review covers all aspects of mammalian biology and ecology, including analytical reviews of current theoretical and applied research on mammals, practical assessments of techniques for studying mammals and large-scale considerations of the status, conservation and management of mammals.

With an increasing number of scientific journals available to access, it becomes increasingly hard to keep track on general aspects of zoology. Hence, review journals are like beacons in the haze of available publications. In line with this, Mammal Review was once again able to increase its Impact Factor according to the 2012 Journal Citation Reports and has now reached 3.424, for the first time in its history. Additionally, with a 5-year Impact Factor of 3.877 it is ranked number 4 in the Zoology category and is thus a leading journal in the field of mammalogy. We hope that Mammal Review contributes to help the International Federation of Mammalogists to fulfill it’s mission, namely to foster the knowledge dissemination and discussion among mammal researcher worldwide.

I invite you to use Mammal Review as a source and a place to publish your knowledge and furthermore, I wish you an inspiring and fruitful conference in Belfast.
