2012 was an extra special year for Bioanalysis and Bioanalysis Zone.
Bioanalysis Zone enjoyed its 1-year birthday celebrations by giving away free goodies, numerous webinars on a whole range of topics and keeping you up to date with all of the news in the bioanalytical world. We attended meetings across the world, unveiled the winner of our Young Investigator Award and the journal enjoyed a total of eight special focus issues. Not only this, but the journal’s impact factor saw a huge increase from 1.337 to 3.223. This review of 2012 looks at the best bits of all of our activities, including expert comments from our readers, authors and editorial board members, as well as the must-read articles of volume 4. Enjoy!
