Case study 2: A fast rise to the top

Acta Veterinaria Scandinavica

The background

Frontiers in Zoology, which is affiliated with the German Zoological Society, was launched with BioMed Central in 2004.

As for many other society-affiliated journals published by BioMed Central, the article processing charge for Frontiers in Zoology includes a surcharge that supports the activities of the Deutsche Zoologische Gesellschaft.

The outcome

The Editors' focus on quality has paid off; with an Impact Factor of 3.87, the journal is now ranked 2/149 in the JCR Zoology category.

From the various options we considered it was clear that BioMed Central offers the most professional support. Their staff have always been very helpful and supportive, and we continue to benefit from their professional support.
