Abstract

The ionic liquid literature has grown at a remarkable rate since 1998, making it increasingly difficult to assess the important research directions and the underlying, fundamental understanding of ionic liquids. This review is an attempt to examine the facts behind this publication phenomenon, to reveal both the advantages and disadvantages of huge publication rates, and to warn against the dangers of rampant and rapid publication - caveat emptor.
