There is, of course, no silver lining for which there isn't a cloud. One's first thought on seeing that the impact factor of PLoS One has increased (marginally, statistically insignificantly?) is naturally that this is the start of a decline. But surely Phil's hypothesis is testable. Is it the case that a fall in Immediacy Index for a growing journal leads to a fall in impact factor? Hundreds of journals have been launched in the past decade - won't the answer be in the data. I look forward to seeing the analysis.
