The new Impact Factor (IF) for the scientific journal Pigment Cell & Melanoma Research (PCMR) was released last week by Journal Citation Reports (JCR), corresponding to its 2011 release, and it has increased to 5.059! Furthermore, the journal has continued its progression in the different rankings where it is considered, namely: 2/58 (Dermatology: Q1), 31/194 (Oncology; Q1), 51/180 (Cell Biology; Q2). This high IF comes from 602 citations in the 2011 literature to papers published in PCMR in 2009 and 2010. Current (Ze’ev Ronai) and past (Colin Goding) Editors-in-Chief, along with their Executive Editors (Heinz Arnheiter and Glenn Merlino) and all members of the Editorial Board must be praised for their hard work and this great achievement. The International Federation of Pigment Cell Societies (IFPCS), whose official journal is PCMR wishes to congratulate them all!.
