The journal addresses all animation made using all known and yet to be developed techniquesfrom 16th century optical devices to contemporary digital mediarevealing its implications on other forms of timebased media expression past present and future. Special features include new theories and methodologies radical contemporary practice microanalyses of individual films archive news teaching learning and research resources and industrial innovations foregrounding specific disciplines and their interrelations with others.animation an interdisciplinary journal is a dynamic forum for promoting exchange between a multitude of disciplines and will facilitate a muchneeded academic dialogue for the interdisciplinary nature of animation studies. It is essential and stimulating reading for academics researchers students curators and practitioners in animation film and media studies cultural studies critical theory architecture artdesign computer sciences games studies and visual culture. The journal encourages both established and emerging scholars.

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.

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
