The purpose of Applied Mathematics Letters is to provide a means of rapid publication for important but brief applied mathematical papers with the best possible typography that a camera-ready publication can provide. It is the intent of the editors to put this journal on the path of continuous evolutionary process insofar as the technicalities of printing and publication are concerned. Our intention is to guarantee that the time elapsed between the receipt of a paper in our editorial offices and publication shall not be more than 90 days on average. The brief descriptions of any work involving a novel application or utilization of mathematics, or a development in the methodology of applied mathematics is a potential contribution for this journal.

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.

Applied Mathematics Letters

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
