Biological Trace Element Research is an international journal dedicated to publishing high-quality articles that advance knowledge of the importance and roles of trace elements for the health and well-being of humans and animals. This knowledge may be conveyed by original research articles, brief communications, and reviews, including those describing negative results from well-preformed experiments giving unexpected or unusual findings. Classical experiments using animal and human models to study deficiency, supra-nutritional, pharmacological, and toxicological aspects of trace elements are especially desired. In vitro, cell culture and microbial models that help in defining the biochemical and physiological roles of trace elements are also welcomed. Studies involving plant models are invited if they are related to the provision of trace elements to animals and humans. Articles involving the importance of trace elements for plant growth, composition, and reproduction will be considered more suitable for other journals focusing on that area of science. Submission of manuscripts describing the use of an agent to treat trace element-induced toxicity are discouraged unless the treatment provides information of the mechanism of the trace-element induced toxicity or the agent is specially designed, such as a newly designed chelating ligand, to attempt to treat the trace-element-induced toxicity. Biological Trace Element Research is published monthly - online - to provide timely and useful information to nutritionists, physiologists, biochemists, chemists, and toxicologists about the biological importance of trace elements.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Biological Trace Element Research


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


Biological Trace Element Research

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
