The journal aims to make complex, policy-related analysis of climate change issues accessible to a wide audience, including those actors involved in: research and the commissioning of policy-relevant research policy and strategy formulation/implementation by local and national governments; the interactions and impacts of climate policies and strategies on business and society, and their responses, in different nations and sectors; international negotiations including, but not limited to, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol, other processes. Climate Policy thus aims to build on its academic base so as to inject new insights and facilitate informed debate within and between, these diverse constituencies.

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.

Climate Policy

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
