I noticed that I had not posted our access statistics since September.  Sorry for the omission – I’m sure many of you are on the edge of your seats waiting for this.

The impact factor is up from 0.27 in September.  The journal’s h-index is up from 2 in September.  The h-index is a measure of citations; it shows how many papers have been cited a certain number of times.  An h-index of 4 means that 4 papers in the IJSF have been cited at least 4 times.

Here’s the top downloaded papers in the IJSF…
