Before you stands the fourth issue of the International Journal of Internet Science. It will be the last one that is the only issue in its volume, because an increasing rate of manuscript submissions of high quality to this start-up journal forces us to jump to two issues next year. From citation analysis to webometrics Our citation analysis in the previous issue (Reips & Matzat, 2008) revealed a surprisingly high journal impact for the International Journal of Internet Science. To publish very few high quality articles has already catapulted this start-up journal beyond many of the long-standing journals in the field. Looking up "International Journal of Internet Science" in Google Scholar now returns 90 instead of 50 references (December 15, 2009, compared to the same day in 2008). Among them are many new citations relevant to the journal's impact factor.
