Sept 01, 2013. IAS has now got a new ISI-Impact Factor. It is now 1.750. This means that the Icel. Agric. Sci. has now the highest IF of all ISI-journals that are published in Iceland. This is also higher IF than for most other small or medium sized scientific journals that publish within the field of applied life sciences; which commonly have IF of about 0.800-1.100. To be able to maintain this high IF the journal needs to continue publishing strong articles which are widely used in international scientific writing.
