Comment: A Bibliometric Evaluation of the Performance of ATLA
years 1988, 1993, 1994 and 1995 show that the impact factor of ATLA has improved significantly over this period, as has the ranking of the journal in relevant sectors of journal publishing. The results further suggest that in vitro toxicology is evolving into a separate discipline and that ATLA is increasingly being seen as one of the key journals for this discipline. However, ATLA’s coverage extends beyond in vitro toxicology. It is a vital and unique resource for the promotion of the Three Rs in fields where no other influential specialised journals on alternatives are currently being published.
