ASCB is leading a =93scholarly insurrection,=94 with the San Francisco
Declaration on Research Assessment, DORA for short, to reduce the impact of
journal impact factors (JIF) on scientific assessment. Our allies include
AAAS, HHMI, EMBO, and numerous other societies, institutions, and
individuals. JIF were created for buying library subscriptions, but they
have been misused as an all-purpose metric to assess the quality of
science. This is deeply flawed, so the coalition wants to steer the
scientific community back to a focus on the content of papers, not the
impact factor of the journal where they happen to be published.

Please help us spread the word about DORA: http://am.ascb.org/dora/. We
hope you will sign the declaration, and encourage all your scientific
colleagues to do so as well.

We started with 155 individual and 78 institutional signers. In three
business days, the numbers have grown to over 800 and over 100,
respectively. But we are aiming for 5,000 signers, so we need your help!

Thanks for helping ASCB and the entire scientific community with this
important initiative.
