The recently published Journal Citation Reports® 2022 show continuously improving impact factors for the two journals managed by Holzforschung München, the European Journal of Wood and Wood Products and Wood Science and Technology. In the current ranking, the score for Wood Science and Technology has risen for the first time above the 3.o mark to actually 3.4! Encouraging for the international reputation of the journals is the fact that both journals are ranked in the best quartile in the subject area of Materials Science, Paper and Wood: WST is ranked 2nd out of 21, and EJWWP 4th out of 21. WST is also ranked in Q1 in the subject area of Forestry Science (6th out of a total of 69 journals). It is gratifying that this positive development has continued over the last decade, and that the work of the editorial team, the national and international reviewers, and also the large number of authors has received international attention.
