RZS publications strive to encourage a diversity of ideas information and research on Australian animals and the conservation of their habitats. A principle of editorial policy is to maintain the relevance of the study of all aspects of zoology to modern science and to recognise the interdisciplinary nature of many of the frontiers of modern research. Original papers and review articles dealing with these topics are welcomed by the Editor. The journal encourages authors to include illustrations particularly maps and photographs. All papers are rigorously edited and reviewed by independent referees.

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.

Australian Zoologist

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
