Marine Drugs (ISSN 1660-3397) publishes peer-reviewed research papers, short notes, and reviews reporting on the discovery, development, exploitation, and production of biologically and therapeutically active compounds from marine habitats. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their research in as much detail as possible; therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the manuscript. Subject areas include: -Identification of bioactive compounds from marine microorganisms, invertebrates, fishes, and plants (e.g. algae, seagrasses, mangroves)- Pharmacological characterization of marine compounds or their derivatives- Marine natural products with activity against human, animal and plant diseases- Marine natural products with insecticidal or herbicidal activities- Synthesis, mutasynthesis and medicinal chemistry of marine natural products- Marine proteomics, glycomics, and lipidomics related to drug discovery or bioactivity- Marine drug development, including pharmaceutical formulation and clinical trials- Marine chemical ecology research inspiring marine drug discovery- Innovative sampling and isolation techniques targeting bioactive marine natural products- Marine biotechnology and molecular biology studies related to drug discovery or production- Structural and biological characterization of marine toxins- Biomaterials of marine origin- Marine-derived ingredients for cosmeceuticals, nutraceuticals, marine-derived functional foods and nutritional supplements

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Marine Drugs

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
