ZooKeys impact factor

The number is out, ZooKeys impact factor sits at a comfortable 1.133.

As a reference, Zootaxa’s IF was 0.891 in 2009, and Coleopterists Bulletin was 0.427.

It’s the open access that does it, I bet. Even though Zootaxa has no page charge, while ZooKeys does, the citation based algorithm to determine IF, I bet, is easily swayed by openness of  access.
