Annual Reviews, located in Palo Alto California, is the non-profit publisher of a collection of 32 review series in specific disciplines in science and social science. Each review series contains 12 to 40 authoritative comprehensive review articles, covering the major journal articles on a specific topic during the preceding few years. The major topics in each subject are covered every few years, and special topics appear as appropriate. These review are widely used in teaching and research, and serve the purposes both of current awareness and introduction to a new subject. Since in a scientific article it is customary to cite in detail the literature only since the most recent review, these periodicals are among the highest ranking journals in Impact Factor for their subjects, as shown in {http://www.annualreviews.org/catalog/isi-rankings.aspx) the publisher's table}. (This does not imply that they are necessarily the most important journals in the subject; review series always rank highly because of the relatively few articles published each year and the many articles that cite them.) The reviews are written in a compact narrative style, with a minimum of descriptive text for each article covered. Many authors provide lists of summary points and future issues. The length of each review and the number of articles covered vary widely depending on both the topic and the preferences of the author. The articles are written by invitation to the authors, who are accepted authorities on the material covered.

Each series is available as a bound annual volume, as individual e-articles purchased online, or as a subscription to the print, online, or both. They are also available as a database consisting of some or all of the series, with site licensing available. The back years of the entire collection can be purchased for a one-time price. Upon cancellation of an electronic-only subscription, a library would lose access to back volumes online (a 2006 policy of Annual Reviews that is not uniform across scientific publishing). Scientific literature is the totality of publications that report original empirical and theoretical work in the sciences and social sciences. ...


The first series to be published was Annual Review of Biochemistry, which began in 1932. Additional series are started every few years, with the topics appropriate to the growth of scientific research. All Annual Review series became available online in 1996.

Head Office | Annual Performance Review (3503 words)
The function of the review is both formative and summative: it involves faculty in the design of their own performance expectations within the context of the department's mission, and it provides a peer and administrative review process to evaluate the success of each year's work.
The functions of the peer review committee are to maintain this document, as approved by the faculty, and to conduct the annual peer reviews of all faculty as required by University regulations.
The overall rating assigned by the peer review committee and the department head shall be determined by the results of the three individual ratings consistent with the workload assignment and with the mission and goals of the department.
