NAR - 100 Most Influential Titles

Nucleic Acids Research has been identified by the Special Libraries Association (SLA) as one of the top 100 most influential journals in Biology and Medicine over the last 100 years.

The SLA’s BioMedical & Life Sciences Division undertook a poll to determine the top journals in these subject areas as part of the SLA’s Centennial celebrations.

Three panels each consisting of three experts were recruited from the SLA Biomedical & Life Sciences Division. Each panel composed a series of questions comparing journals in categories of biology or medicine. Tony Stankus from the University of Arkansas was the recruiter of the expert teams, the arbiter of disputes over disciplinary boundaries, and final editor of the poll.

‘‘We are delighted that Nucleic Acids Research is considered by the SLA to be among the most influential titles in Biology and Medicine’, commented Mandy Hill, Editorial Director for Science and Medicine at Oxford University Press. ‘As a publisher, we are committed to doing all we can to ensure that this journal, and others we publish, continue to be high quality and high impact.’

Nucleic Acids Research, one of the first full open access journals, publishes the results of leading edge research into physical, chemical, biochemical and biological aspects of nucleic acids and proteins involved in nucleic acid metabolism and/or interactions.
