According to a recent Journal Citation Report (JCR) produced by Thomson Scientific, the IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security has improved its impact factor and made a significant jump in the rank of IEEE publications in 2009. The impact factor indicates how often publications have been cited by researchers writing for other publications. The more a journal’s papers are cited by researchers in their papers, as measured by the JCRs, the more its published research is regarded as leading-edge.
Partial results are reported below for reference:

A rank of 29 out of 245 journals for a 5-year old journal is a great result. As members of the IFS community, we should all be proud of this result and be committed to further improve the quality of our research, through good publications, workshops and conferences.
Finally, thank to all those that directly or indirectly contributed to this excellent result.
