Great news: Internet Research’s 2012 impact factor is 1.5 (up from 1.115 last year).

From the journal information page and I quote from here:

Unique attributes: Internet Research is an international, refereed journal that aims to describe, assess and foster understanding of the role of wide-area, multi-purpose computer networks such as the Internet.

Topicality: As the internet continues to gather influence and momentum, it will be increasingly important to be aware of the potential applications of this powerful resource throughout professional, political, personal and academic life.

Key benefits: As well as looking at the technological developments which facilitate the use of wide-area networks, the journal examines the social, ethical, economic and political implications which arise from mass public access to information resources.
