Odonatologica’s new Journal Impact Factor

Although the Impact Factor is not necessarily a true measure of a journal’s actual quality and significant changes of the JIF – whether positive or negative – may be caused by chance, we nevertheless proudly announce that in the 2017 Journal Citation Reports (released on 14 June 2017 by Clarivate™ Analytics, formerly Thomson Reuters, based on 2016 data), Odonatologica’s IF has increased from 0.521 (based on 2015 data) to 0.718.
