High Impact Journals

Superfund Research Program

Many SRP scientists have published their findings in "high-impact journals" - those considered to be highly influential in their fields. A journal's impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which an average article in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The following list highlights some recent SRP-funded publications in high impact journals.
