The AIMS Journal spearheads discussions about change and development in the maternity services. It is highly regarded both by parentswho find it an excellent source of information and supportand by workers in maternity care.Until the end of 2017 the journal was published for members only with selected articles being available on our website. From the beginning of 2018 we are publishing our journal online and making the articles available to all. We hope that this will ensure that they are read by more people and are more easily shared amongst anyone with an interest in pregnancy and birth issues. Membership of AIMS continues to support and fund our ability to create the online journal as well as supporting our other work including campaiging and our helpline.

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.

AIMS Journal

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
