Below is a ranked list of selected journals that publish papers on the phylogeny and morphology of extant organisms in general and insects in particular and a selected few of the journals that publish on evolution, bioinformatics, and theoretical biology that are of interest to systematists. They are ordered by the average number of citations each of their papers (published in 2000 and 2001) received in one year (2002) (you know what I'm talking about).
