These articles are generating conversation and influencing the community. They are our most “highly cited” articles from 2016–2017, which will contribute to the next impact factor. The impact factor is a metric that attempts to quantify the relevance of published research, and it’s not without its (many, many) flaws. However, we do like to acknowledge when Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (ET&C) and Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management (IEAM) research is being read, used and cited, so thank you to our authors for sending such high-caliber material.
