Thought you all might be interested that PLoS Biology received a
preliminary impact factor (based only on articles published in the
fall of 2003) of 13.9. Not quite in Nature and Science territory, but
a very good number for a startup journal from a new publisher.

All the usual caveats about impact factors apply, but it's a great
statement about the value and progress of open access.
