I wish to thanks your initiative. Today we have many journals and this info is precious. Let me ask you we can update this info ?

Regards,

Rodrigo

Rodrigo,

I don't have access to the newly released 2013 data.  However, if you or others can provide me with a complete list of the 8000 or so journals and impact factors provided by Thomson-Reuters, I can write a short program to extract the latest information.
