Three University of Chicago Press Journals are listed among the Special Library Association's "100 Most Influential Journals in Biology and Medicine over the past 100 years."
The American Naturalist, Clinical Infectious Diseases and The International Journal of Plant Sciences each made the list, compiled as part of the SLA's Centennial Celebration. Candidates were chosen by nine subject experts from the SLA's Biomedical and Life Sciences Division (DBIO). The 680-plus members of the DBIO voted on the final list of 100.
"We congratulate these three publications on being named among the most influential, and for their years of service to their disciplines," said Everett Conner, journals manager at the Press. "We're very proud to make such quality research available to scholars in biology and medicine."
