Indeed, the journal is indexed in Web of Science from Clarivate (no longer Thomson Reuters). In the so-called Master Journal list you can check in which index of Clarivate a journal is included: https://mjl.clarivate.com/homeThe journal is included in the JCReport 2021 (see enclosed file) but still indexed in ESCI index (and consequently still no impact factor).
Some here seem not willing to understand that by definition there is only one impact factor (for journals indexed in SCIE/SSCI index of Clarivate). As indicated in numerous replies the journal IS indexed in Scopus and received an alternative impact factor called CiteScore (assigned by Scopus property of Elsevier, so another company).
Since the journal is indexed in Scopus it might be an indication that this journal is a safe choice however as indicated in my reply of March 28th, 2020 and by Sura I.Mohammed Ali the publisher behind this journal might be suspect. Read carefully and decide for yourself.
So the journal is now in the middle of the two year evaluation before the final decision to be included in Scopus (and assignment of impact factor and Cite score: so right now they have not).
Normally I tend to say that with these inclusions in serious indexing it is pretty safe and this journal (and publisher behind it) is legit. However looking at the discussion about the publisher “Blue Eyes Intelligence Engineering and Sciences Publication” here on RG:
Where basically three of their journals were (after an evaluation of two years) discontinued per February 2020, I feel some hesitation. There is a chance that researchers can be disappointed when the journal we talk about here might be discontinued next year. The thing is that beside this discontinuation issue:
The publisher behind this journal is “The Science and Information Organization (SAI)”:
(you find them under the S). By itself a warning sign but not enough to jump into conclusions. They have been accused of organizing bogus conferences and a (falsely) claimed collaboration with Springer however one of their latest conferences:
So is this journal (and organization behind it) predatory? Is it a safe choice? I am not sure. The indexing (for the moment) in serious services like ESCI and Scopus and their conference papers that are published in at least one the proceedings of Springer give a solid impression. But as said above be aware that their inclusion in for example Scopus is still under evaluation.
Sorry for the long answer but sometimes things aren’t that black and white.
Hello, this is now indexed in Clarivate Analytics/ISI and is part of the ESCI. They might have some problems in the past and was dubious. Now, I think they gotten better. Papers are quite good as well.
CiteScore calculation is based on Scopus data, while Impact Factor is based on Web of Science data.CiteScore includes all document types indexed by Scopus, include articles, reviews, letters. Impact factor = # of citations to all items published in that journal in the past two years
# of articles and reviews published over those past two years referencing those citations
As indicated by Daler Ali and as said in my earlier reply from March 28: this journal is indexed in the ESCI database, this means the journal is now evaluated for inclusion in SCIE and only when this happens, they will get an impact factor.
The inclusion (and thereby the assignment of an impact factor) happens once a year approx. in June. So, the first possible moment where this journal might have an impact factor is June 2021.
It is listed in Scopus (and, consequently, in Scimago). It has a SJR (Scimago impact factor) of 0.156 in 2019 (Q4 in Computer Science - miscellaneous), and a CiteScore (Scopus impact factor) of 0.6 in 2019.
On the other hand, it is not listed yet in SCIE - Web Of Science, so it does not have the Journal Impact Factor (JIF), ie the ISI/Clarivate impact factor.
Indeed, if you just search for the journal and impact factor some vague site suggests an impact factor of 1.3. However, keep in mind that there are a lot of so-called misleading metrics around on the net:
Dear Ramzi Jaber as indicated in the various replies above, this journal has no impact factor (since it is not indexed the Clarivate's SCIE). See also my previous reply on October the 24th.
The 'impact factor' you mention is as explained by Alessandro Sebastian Podda the so-called CiteScore (an alternative impact factor introduced by Elsevier's Scopus). But acccording to the definition this is not THE impact factor. It is a similar kind of metrics though.
Dear Prof Rob Keller maybe this is help you to answer the question, the impact factor has been indicate from elsevier scopus for this journal are 3 indicator of impact factor this is seeing from 3 indicator :
1. CiteScore 2019 this is aCiteScore measures average citations received per document published in the serial the value is 0.6
2. SJR 2019 this is a SCImago Journal Rank SCImago Journal Rank measures weighted citations received by the serial. Citation weighting depends on subject field and prestige (SJR) of the citing serial. the score is 0.156, and
3.SNIP 2019 (Source Normalized Impact per Paper Source Normalized Impact per Paper measures actual citations received relative to citations expected for the serial’s subject field.), the score is 0.382.
If my college asked me to publish a paper in a journal that is in the web of science and in Q1 or Q2 or Q3 or Q4. ok? International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications is in Thomson Reuters but How do I know the impact factor and Q of this journal?
I asked the journal by email and they told me It is currently under consideration for Impact Factor at Thomson Reuters.
