The Annals of Human Genetics is a bimonthly peer-reviewed scientific journal covering human genetics. It was established in 1925 by Karl Pearson as the Annals of Eugenics, with as subtitle, Darwin's epigram "I have no Faith in anything short of actual measurement and the rule of three".[1] The journal obtained its current name in 1954 to reflect changing views on the role of eugenics in society.[2] The editor-in-chief is Andres Ruiz-Linares (University College London). According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2012 impact factor of 2.215.[3]
