By Mary Ann Zimmerman Senior Acquisitions Editor
Our Journals colleagues aren’t the only ones celebrating another great year of improving Impact Factors; Elsevier’s prestigious book series have also performed very well this year.
Along with other altmetrics, Impact Factors measure a journal’s relative importance and impact in its field by using the ratio of citations to articles published. Elsevier’s book series publish expanded review articles, acting as a great complementary resource to our journals portfolio. These publications seek to cover the top advancements in a given field in a flexible format, allowing for more in-depth coverage. The book series help researchers stay current on developments in the field.
