the American Society for Cell Biology has initiated a declaration on research assessment (DORA), which opposes the use of the Journal Impact Factor as a measure for research quality of individuals and institutions. This message seems not to be very widespread among taxonomists so far, so I think it is worth reading the declaration at http://am.ascb.org/dora/. Interestingly, the present Editor-in-Chief of Science, Bruce Alberts, is among the first signees of that declaration.
