leave a comment »

Nature Publishing Group now publishes 16 of the top 50 (32%) journals by Impact Factor, twice as many as any other scientific publisher.
We are proud of this indication of the high quality of our journals, but were particularly honored this year by an award from the library community.
Nature was named the most influential journal of the last 100 years by the BioMedical & Life Sciences Division (DBIO) of the Special Libraries Association (SLA).
