Top Environmental Journals

Below is a list of the top 10 journals in the research category of Environmental Science. The list is produced by ranking the highest impact factor assessed in 2020. Impact factor is based on the total citations out of the total citable publications. As we have discussed in “what is a good impact factor?”, impact factor is NOT the be-all and end-all; it’s not the ONLY journal influence indicator out there. However, even with the inventions such as H-index and SJR score, impact factor is still widely adopted and referenced by leading research institutes and researchers world-wide. So, let’s treat this listing as a starter and go deeper. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the Top 10 Journal by Impact Factors in 2020.

  1. ” Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (Impact Factor: 24.222)”
  2. ” Nature Climate Change (Impact Factor: 18.455)”
  3. ” Advances in Optics and Photonics (Impact Factor: 15.185)”
  4. ” MMWR. Morbidity and mortality weekly report (Impact Factor: 14.403)”
  5. ” Global Environmental Change (Impact Factor: 11.386)”
  6. ” Annual Review of Environment and Resources (Impact Factor: 9.745)”
  7. ” Green Chemistry (Impact Factor: 9.212)”
