Prof. Dr. Charles Brennan
The increase in the impact factor for IJMS illustrates the importance of the Journal amongst the science community. Such a significant increase means that IJMS is regarded as one of the most important vehicles for communicating scientific advancements and credit is due to the tremendous effort of the editorial team, reviewers and above all to the authors for providing such insightful research papers. I am proud to be associated with such a premium international journal in molecular sciences.

Prof. Dr. Ian Nicholls
I was delighted to see the increase, and my strong feeling is that it shall continue to do so given the combination of an excellent management a production staff and engaged editors. I look forward to us breaking the "3-barrier" next year.

Prof. Dr. Stephen Bustin
I got it and this is great news. Congratulations.
