It is amazing that Peter Hall has problems with getting cited :)). To
me, high immediacy means that a journal publishes some crap that
nobody bothers to reproduce and reuse after three years. Annals' 10+
years of citation half life are far more honorable.

Here are the links to the paper Tony mentioned: doi:10.1214/09-STS285,
http://projecteuclid.org/euclid.ss/1255009002. I could not find it on
arXiv... I always hated its front end (and was suggesting RePEc to Jim
Pitman as a better thought-through service; he did not agree though).
