    We are being increasingly called upon to judge how impactful the work of various individuals is to the scientific and professional communities. At universities we are asked to judge how impactful the publications of our colleagues are when they come up for promotion and tenure; on faculty search committees we are asked to judge how impactful the various candidates will be if hired; and as Editors-in-Chief (EIC) we are constantly evaluating how impactful a particular manuscript will be when deciding on acceptance.
