Dear ASA members,

 I am delighted to announce that the 2016 PASA impact factor has been released and is 4.095. This is an increase from the 2015 impact factor of 3.245 and is an all-time record for PASA (see graph attached). For comparison, here are a few of our competitor journals impact factors:
PASJ: 1.859 (2015 IF was 1.961)
PASP: 4.446 (2015 IF was 4.422)
Monthly Notices: 4.961 (2015 IF was 4.952)
A&A: 5.014 (2015 IF was 5.185)
Ap J: 5.533 (2015 IF was 5.909)

On behalf of the Editorial Board I would like to everyone from the ASA who has contributed articles in the last few years, leading to this very strong result for the journal. Particular thanks go to Amanda Karakas, the MWA collaboration, and Aaron Robotham for well-cited contributions.

Yours in publishing,


PS: Impact factor is computed from citations in 2016 to papers published in 2014 and 2015
