  1. (Note, Frontiers in Zoology is not included in the survey because no papers are retrieved by the search terms promiscuity or promiscuous, and only two papers were retrieved by the search terms polyandry or polyandrous).
  2. 12012 Journal Citation Report®, ISI Web of Knowledge™.
  3. 2h-index calculated according to J.E. Hirsch in ISI Web of Knowledge™.
  4. 3Calculated as the number of papers retrieved by the search terms promiscuity or promiscuous, divided by the sum of the number of papers retrieved by the search terms promiscuity, promiscuous and polyandry or polyandrous.
  5. 4The mean cites per paper retrieved by the search terms promiscuity or promiscuous less the mean cites per paper retrieved by the search terms polyandry or polyandrous.
