The Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation (
http://jasss.soc.surrey.ac.uk) published issue 3 of Volume 9 on 30 June.

JASSS is an electronic, refereed journal devoted to the exploration and
understanding of social processes by means of computer simulation.   It is
freely available, with no subscription.

We welcome Flaminio Squazzoni, of the University of Brescia, Italy, as our
new Review Editor.  He takes over from Edmund Chattoe, who has been a very
successful and hard-working Review Editor since the journal was founded.

Although JASSS has been listed in the Social Science Citation Index for some
years, the statistics for the journal collated in the ISI  Journal Citation
Reports were incorrect, because of a processing error by ISI.  After many
months of correspondence, we have now succeeded in getting the correct
values published, and this shows that JASSS has an

Impact Factor for 2005 of 1.061

This makes JASSS the journal with the 10th highest impact factor among the
59 interdisciplinary social science journals ranked by the JCR -  very
respectable figure for a relatively new journal.
