High-Impact Journals

The article titled "Flow Of Scientific Progress Creates Wave Of New Journals" [The Scientist, Nov. 12, 1990, page 17], which lists high-impact journals, errs in stating that none of the high-impact journals listed began publishing after 1981. Contrary to the statement, Neuron, which is ranked third on the high-impact list of neuroscience journals, began in March 1988 and is just completing its third year of publication.

The article titled "Flow Of Scientific Progress Creates Wave Of New Journals" [The Scientist, Nov. 12, 1990, page 17], which lists high-impact journals, errs in stating that none of the high-impact journals listed began publishing after 1981. Contrary to the statement, Neuron, which is ranked third on the high-impact list of neuroscience journals, began in March 1988 and is just completing its third year of publication. It is indeed the only journal on the three lists you published to have started so recently, and Neuron and the British Journal of Pharmacology (which started in 1946) are the only two that publish original research articles.
