Impact Factor



Biotechnology & Bioengineering publishes Perspectives, Articles, Reviews, Mini-Reviews, and Communications to the Editor that embrace all aspects of biotechnology. These include: -Enzyme systems and their applications, including enzyme reactors, purification, and applied aspects of protein engineering -Animal-cell biotechnology, including media development -Applied aspects of cellular physiology, metabolism, and energetics -Biocatalysis and applied enzymology, including enzyme reactors, protein engineering, and nanobiotechnology -Biothermodynamics -Biofuels, including biomass and renewable resource engineering -Biomaterials, including delivery systems and materials for tissue engineering -Bioprocess engineering, including kinetics and modeling of biological systems, transport phenomena in bioreactors, bioreactor design, monitoring, and control -Biosensors and instrumentation -Computational and systems biology, including bioinformatics and genomic/proteomic studies -Environmental biotechnology, including biofilms, algal systems, and bioremediation -Metabolic and cellular engineering -Plant-cell biotechnology -Spectroscopic and other analytical techniques for biotechnological applications -Synthetic biology -Tissue engineering, stem-cell bioengineering, regenerative medicine, gene therapy and delivery systems The editors will consider papers for publication based on novelty, their immediate or future impact on biotechnological processes, and their contribution to the advancement of biochemical engineering science. Submission of papers dealing with routine aspects of bioprocessing, description of established equipment, and routine applications of established methodologies (e.g., control strategies, modeling, experimental methods) is discouraged. Theoretical papers will be judged based on the novelty of the approach and their potential impact, or on their novel capability to predict and elucidate experimental observations.

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.

Biotechnology and Bioengineering


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

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.
