With the announcement of our first impact factor of 2.429, and the recent news that Methods and Applications in Fluorescence (MAF) will be indexed by MEDLINE and searchable from the PubMed® database, this year has been a very exciting year for the journal. After only a few years, MAF is already establishing itself as the home of the highest quality fluorescence research. Our desire has been for a journal in our area which could showcase the best work in fluorescence and so give a fitting home for what is a truly multi-disciplinary field, combining cutting edge optical and imaging techniques with organic and bio-chemistry to address major issues in biology and medicine.
