According to the ICB website, “Integrative and Comparative Biology (ICB), formerly American Zoologist, is one of the most highly respected and cited journals in the field of biology. The journal’s primary focus is to integrate the varying disciplines in this broad field, while maintaining the highest scientific quality. ICB’s peer-reviewed symposia provide first class syntheses of the top research in a field, perfect for classes or a quick update. Since 2007, ICB issues have been published monthly from July to December. This ensures that all the papers arising from SICB's annual January meeting are published within the same year.”
